Area man dies of injuries sustained from accident

Thursday, October 1, 2009

A Brazil man, who apparently walked into the path of a moving vehicle on Sept. 24, has died from his injuries.

Brazil Police Chief Dave Archer told The Brazil Times on Thursday, Pathologist Dr. Roland Kohr notified the department that Robert C. Parke, 37, died from injuries sustained during the accident, which took place near the intersection of Ridge Street and State Road 59.

According to the accident report filed at the Brazil Police Department, Parke was walking west along Ridge Street when he walked out into traffic on SR 59. Due the early-morning darkness and rainy weather conditions, Janet Johnson, 38, Brazil, told investigators she was unable to see or avoid hitting Parke with her vehicle.

Deemed an accident, Archer confirmed no charges would be filed against Johnson.

FOR ALL YOU IDIOTS THAT DIDN'T KNOW BOBBY OR DIDN'T LIKE HIM, YOU DIDN'T TAKE THE CHANCE TO KNOW HIM. HE WAS A GOOD PERSON AND WOULD BEND OVER BACKWARDS TO HELP ANYONE. HE WAS MY FRIEND AND HE WILL BE SADLY MISSED. HE WOULD GIVE ANYONE ANYTHING. THERE ISN'T ENOUGH WORDS TO SAY WHAT HE WOULD DO FOR SOMEONE. MY HEART IS WITH HIS BROTHER AND HIS SISTER. THEY ARE IN MY HEART AND IN MY PRAYERS.

I did not know this person, so I guess I am an idiot as well T.L.D. Does it seem right for a person to scream at others with their caps lock just because they do not know a person, and call them "idiots" in the process? Looks to me like SMarqua83 needs a time out with all the other delinquents. I do not see as anyone has even said anything negative about Robert C. Parke in the first place.

This is one reason I wish this wasn't here. One person doesn't know how to use it, and everyone else follows suit. Please keep this as positive as possible and not fight among ourselves.
