Ted Shiminski took ASM training in Dallas, TX area with Michelle Inzunza and Jeff Crotzer. Little did he know, that just months later he would be using the information he learned. Ted’s wife, Karen, wrote: Last night as we were leaving our church festivities we came upon a biker who was down. He unsuccessfully tried to take a curve doing too fast and lost control. Ted found him face down thrown from his bike and stayed with him keeping him calm until the EMT's arrived,. I was on traffic control while Ted maintained the scene. I was so proud of him and the EMT's said that they really appreciated him helping them load him into the ambulance just like we were taught. Thank God and thanks to u and Accident Scene Management for teaching us PACT the biker is alive.

Cannonball Crash

From the Antique Motorcycle Club of America
The Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run may have ended several weeks ago, but we continue to get updates from stuff that happened along the 4,000-mile route between Daytona Beach, Florida, and Tacoma, Washington.Clyde Crouch

Today’s news came in the form of a phone call from Clyde Crouch, who was injured in a crash on September 14.

Clyde was riding on a narrow, twisty two-lane through the Colorado Rockies when his 1928 Henderson went off the road. He said he wasn’t going more than 15 mph when the bike hit a gravel dropoff at the edge of the pavement. He went down, and as he says, “I was the mattress between the bike and the edge of the road .”

As a result of falling on him, the bike was undamaged. And at first, it appeared the same was true for Clyde. Fortunately, though, Vicki “Spitfire” Sanfelipo, an EMT who was riding as part of the Cannonball support crew, happened along. Vicki, who is the founder of the Accident Scene Management program, became the guardian angel of this year’s Cannonball, watching over the physical condition of riders both on and off the bike. She was concerned about possible internal injuries that Clyde might have suffered and pushed for a trip to the hospital.

Leading the Way in 2015

Cat Hammes, RN worked night shift in an acute care hospital. One day, as she lay awake thinking about a patient, she decided to get up and take a motorcycle ride. Little did she know that day would change her life forever. A van pulling out of a liquor store failed to see her and pulled directly into her path. Fortunately, a motorcyclist who had been trained by ASM was on the scene. He attended to Cat before the EMTs got there and made sure they were aware of her injuries upon their arrival. Because of this stranger, though Cat was critically injured her future was better than it could have been. ASM’s goal is to reduce motorcycle fatalities to ZERO! Without our training, others like Cat, won’t be so lucky!
