Candelight vigil held for motorcyclist killed on Sunday


A Rockford man killed while riding his motorcycle Sunday is honored in a candelight vigil Wednesday night.

Crowds of bikers and friends rallied in honor of 40-year-old Randall Woodfork.
Woodfork's motorcycle collided with a car that turned in front of him on North Central Ave.
He was thrown from his bike and pronounced dead at the hospital.

The group released balloons in his honor near the site where he died and called on drivers to be careful in sharing the road.

"Right now everyone's feeling disappointed, like, something happened that shouldn't have never happened. That's another young man gone too soon. There needs to be awareness raised for people to really watch out for bikers," said Jerry Owens, Brother's Motorcycle Cub President.

The name of the other driver has not been released.
