BALTIMORE (CBS NEWSPATH/WJZ) — A motorcycle group hosted a ride Saturday in memory of a Baltimore County man who died trying to deliver face coverings to those in need amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Paul Craven was driving home on his motorcycle when police say he crossed the center line on Bethlehem Boulevard and was hit by a truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Drivers decorated cars with notes. One said the legacy and love he left will be here on Earth forever.
Friends say they wanted to celebrate his life after losing him so tragically.
“Knowing that he passed away doing something that would really help the community, that’s just Paul,” Brad Gayhardt, Craven’s friend, said.
Craven and his wife started making masks in March. They had made about 3,000 in total.
