Family and friends of the late Lawrence Hilton gathered today outside the Toledo Municipal Court to remember him and draw attention to motorcycle safety.

They were there because a pretrial had been scheduled for Dr. Nabil A. Ebraheim, 62, of Ottawa Hills, who is charged with vehicular homicide for the Aug. 30 death of Mr. Hilton. The pretrial was rescheduled until Feb. 27.

Mr. Hilton, 54, was eastbound on Dorr Street at Richards Road in southwest Toledo about 6 a.m. Aug. 30 when he struck the side of an auto driven south on Richards by Dr. Ebraheim.

According to the report, Dr. Ebraheim, an orthopedic specialist at the University of Toledo Medical Center, stopped for a flashing red traffic light on Richards before proceeding into the intersection, where a flashing yellow signal governed east-west traffic.

Mr. Hilton, an auto mechanic at the University of Toledo, wore a helmet. He was taken to Toledo Hospital and died the next day.

Both drivers were on their way to work, police said.

UTMC is the former Medical College of Ohio Hospital.
