Richland dentist who died in motorcycle crash had big impact on community
RICHLAND, Wash. -- 59 year old David Carroll was a Husband, a father and a dentist in Richland for the last 30 years.
Carroll's practice was at Riverside Professional Center off of George Washington Way.
He was also a former women's softball coach at Columbia Basin College and an assistant coach at Hanford High School. He is a graduate of WSU.
The death is especially hard for the Caroll family because they also lost a son in April 2008. Benjamin Carroll made news at KNDU for overcoming his disability. He was an attorney despite being born with muscular atrophy.
David Carroll died Wednesday when his motorcycle hit a guardrail on state Highway 20 in Okanogan County.
Washington State Patrol Troopers say David L. Carroll, 59, was westbound about 13 miles west of Mazama when his motorcycle went off the road's right side on a curve. He was ejected when the bike hit the guardrail. Carroll, who was wearing a helmet, died at the scene.
