Remembering a Friend by Driving

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A group of friends are remembering a man Saturday who died in a motorcycle accident in Billings.

The memorial for 21-year-old Jacob Shubin was set up for the accident that happened at the intersection of Grand Avenue and 6th Street West two weeks ago. Shubin's friends said he was an advocate for safe driving practices.

"He was the safest kid in the world," said Tamera Hammond, his friend. "And I just hope that if it is going to save someone else's life to wear their helmet or stay safe not speed, not race in and out of traffic. You know, that's just what he always tried to do just make sure everybody was safe."

Hammond and friends are cruising down to Red Lodge because the Beartooth Pass was Shubin's favorite drive. His friends say 60 to 100 drivers from all around the state will be honoring Shubin Saturday night.

After they drive back to Billings, they will drive 25 miles per hour on 24th Street West. They say it's something Shubin always wanted to do to promote safe driving.
