Community Comes Together to Support the Baisch Family After Motorcycle Accident


Brent Baisch

Brent Baisch of Brentwood was critically injured in a motorcycle accident Friday May 2nd on the 580 freeway in Castro Valley. The accident occurred when a car changed lanes apparently not seeing the motorcycle.

Brent’s motorcycle collided with the car and upon impact he was launched over the vehicle and landed on another. An off duty Police Officer was nearby and was quickly able to immobilize him prior to the arrival of emergency crews.

This tragic accident has rendered him paralyzed from the waist down and suffering from additional injuries including a neck fracture, broken ribs, and torn rotator cuff. He has undergone one spinal surgery which is the first in a series needed to address his multiple injuries.

Brent is the loving husband of local Realtor ®, Kathaleen Baisch, adoring father of Zack and Sabrina, beloved family member, and friend.

“To know him is to love him,” says Monica Malcuit. “He’s an avid golfer who loves to make people laugh. He enjoys sports, cars, boating, fishing, and hunting, just to name a few.”

Family and friends are anxious to help with his recovery and get him back home. To do so, the family home will need to undergo a remodel in order to accommodate his condition.

Longtime friend, Dwayne Mullins has spearheaded efforts to coordinate contractors and materials to create a master suite in the downstairs of the two-story home.

One can only imagine the type of hardship that Brent and family will endure during his recovery. A fund has been set up to assist the family with the remodel and provide some monetary support while they work through this difficult time.

The Baisch family is simply overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, support, prayers received and wish to send their love and thanks to everyone who has reached out to them.

“I love him very much and hope everyone keeps him in their prayers,” said Sabrina Baisch.
