Frank Pastore, 55, who died Monday from injuries suffered one month earlier when a car swerved into his motorcycle on the 210 Freeway in Duarte, discussed the possibility of being killed in a motorcycle crash the day it happened.

Pastore, a former pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds and Minnesota Twins, hosted a talk show on KKLA-FM in Glendale every Monday through Friday until the day of his accident.

On the day of his accident, Pastore brought up the fact that he might very well be killed in a motorcycle accident.

"You guys know I ride a motorcycle, right? At any moment, especially with the idiot people who cross the diamond lane into my lane, without any blinkers – not that I'm angry about it – at any minute, I could be spread all over the 210....," Pastore said on Nov. 19, the day of the accident.

KKLA put up the sound bite on its website, with the message: "At Frank's wife Gina's request, here is the remarkable, prophetic sound byte of when Frank speaks about what will happen to him three hours later!"
