Speed bump changes made three years after deadly accident

By Kimberly Foley. CREATED Aug 30, 2014

OMAHA, Neb. - An Omaha father is relieved a speed bump is now more visable to drivers.

In July 2011, Jim Welsh lost his son, Patrick, in a motorcycle accident.

Jim said Patrick drove his friend's bike over an unmarked speed bump, lost control, crashed and later died.

Patrick was wearing a helmet.

Three years later, changes were finally made to the speed bump.

"It doesn't bring Patrick back, but it wasn't all in vain," said Jim. "I know nobody else can potentially suffer the same thing that he did."

The speed bump is near the softball fields in Tranquility Park.
