A Tucson woman is recovering in the ICU after a gruesome motorcycle accident.

Authorities say Ron Bondy and his fiancee, Linda Gonzalez, were riding together on a motorcycle in their Southeast side neighborhood Wednesday when the couple ran into a ratchet strap.

The strap was intentionally placed across the street near East Silver Beech Drive and South Evergreen Avenue, tied from a mailbox to a tree in the median.

Ron was in the front seat of the motorcycle and missed the strap. But Linda was in the back seat, which sits a bit higher than the front seat.

"It hit her in the mouth," he said. "It almost took her off the bike and just ripped her apart."

A report has been filed with the Tucson Police Department. The family believes the strap was placed in the street as part of a prank. Anyone with information is urged to call 8-8-CRIME. All tips can remain anonymous.

Ron's daughter, Marie Bondy, said she is hopeful someone will come forward with information.

“Whoever they are, they're inhumane, absolute monsters,” she said. “I can't imagine who would do something like that. I really hope that whoever is responsible is brought to very swift and strict justice because we are very, very distraught.”

Linda is suffering from multiple facial injuries, and has been placed in a medically induced coma at Banner UMC. Ron said her road to recovery will be long, but he will be there every step of the way.

"She's funny and she's loving. Her heart is as big as this hospital," he said. "Pray for her. She's a beautiful woman and she's going to be beautiful again."

The Bondy family has set up a GoFundMe account to  help with Linda’s medical expenses. You can find a link here.
