Families, friends on both sides of Hampton bicycle crash grieve
"Our entire family is completely traumatized and we mourn for the people that were lost in this tragedy. We also pray for the ones that were injured," Magnus Hess told reporters outside the courthouse Wednesday shortly after his sister, 19-year-old Darriean Hess, was arraigned on negligent homicide and second-degree assault charges.
Killed during the Granite State Wheelmen Seacoast Century Ride were Pamela Wells, 60, of South Hamilton, Mass., and Elise Bouchard, 52, of Danvers, Mass.
"I didn't see any tears rolling out of her eyes while she was sitting there (in jail). She just wants to get out; that's what it looked like to me. Her family should suffer by having her in jail like we have to suffer without having our loved ones with us," Wiley said.
"She was just an unbelievable person to lose," he said.
Injured bicyclist Uwe Uhmeyer issued a statement from Portsmouth Regional Hospital Wednesday, saying he is "just happy to be alive."
