Lexington crash victim's family offers reward

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -- Maryanne Reynolds-Drury's widow, Debbie, says Maryanne was always the adventurous one.

"She never was a speed demon or anything like that on a bike. She loved getting out and just going," Debbie said.

A motorcycle crash on May 31 killed Maryanne. she left behind a wife and son. Debbie says each day that passes since the accident is a little tougher.

"Just yesterday, he saw a picture of her that I have on the refrigerator of all three of us and he said 'Mommy here?' and I said, 'No, mommy's not here,'," Debbie said.

The family is still trying to understand exactly what happened. Investigators are still piecing it together, but they say it appears Maryanne's motorcycle hit the back end of a dark colored BMW, she fell over into oncoming traffic and was hit by a Hummer. Police say the Hummer driver stayed, but the BMW driver left the scene, leaving a bumper behind. There haven't been many answers since that night. Now, the family is hoping a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction will speed things up.

"That's part of the reason we're offering a reward now. To get someone to come forward to hopefully bring this person lives a life so that we can find out what really happened," Debbie said.

Debbie says Maryanne was riding with friends from a motorcycle the night the accident happened. Now, those friends plan to honor her during the upcoming fourth of July parade. She says that community of bikers means the world to her.

"It just goes to show you that that community's spirit of taking care of one another hasn't disappeared," Debbie said. She says the motorcycle ride will also raise awareness for one of Maryanne's favorite organizations, Paws4aCause.
