Memorial Ride Honors Woman Killed in Crash

Posted: Updated:

Still no word tonight, if any charges will be filed in the fatal motorcycle crash that occurred last week in Millcreek.

As the investigation continues, members of the motorcycle community are honoring the victim of that crash.

On Wednesday, nearly 100 bikers gathered outside of the Harley-Davidson of Erie on West 12th Street to take part in a memorial ride, for 53-year-old  Margaret Ann "Peggy" Sargent.  She recently passed away after she was hit by a Jeep while riding her motorcycle.

"A lot of us are still in shock," said Sargent's brother Chip Smisko.  "Just somebody not watching where they are going, and this is what happens."

Peggy's sisters in the Chrome Angels of Erie bike club describe her as one of a kind.

"Peggy was a bubbly person," said Chrome Angels President Theresa Malmgren.  "She always had a smile on her face.  She always liked to have a good time, and she loved riding her bike."

The group of bikers made their way to the Eddler Funeral Home in Girard, to pay their last respects.

For Peggy's family, the support has meant the world.

"It means everything to us," said Smisko.  "You really don't know how many lives you touch until something like this happens.  As tragic as it is, but you see the people here and the people she touched."

Meanwhile, Sargent's loved ones hope to send this message...

"We want the public to know that we are out there," said Malmgren.  "Please look twice before you pull out.  Know that we're beside you.  We're your mothers, your sisters, your friends and family.  Please, please, please pay attention."
