Dr. Jack Diles of Symsonia Kentucky was killed over the weekend in a Kentucky motorcycle accident. Dr. Diles had been practicing Internal Medicine in western Kentucky for the last four decades.
Dr. Diles used to be a neighbor of mine when I was growing up. He was a nice man and an established doctor. His accidental death should be a warning sign to all of those that ride motorcycles in Kentucky.
In this case it appears that the other driver was at fault. That means that it is possible to ride a motorcycle, obey all traffic signals and laws and still be hurt. There is so much less protection for the driver of a motorcycle than one that is in a motor vehicle.
I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Dr. Jack Diles. God bless you in this most difficult time.
I know Dr. Diles will be missed by many patients, friends and family.
