      A Niagara Falls man whose motorcycle was struck by a car in Depew died early Thursday in Erie County Medical Center, leaving his family mourning his death and maintaining its vigil for his wife, who was critically injured in the same collision. Daniel A. Grawe, 56, of Niagara Falls Boulevard, who was driving the motorcycle, died at 2:20 a.m., after he had taken a turn for the worse the night before. His wife, Franziska, 52, remained in critical condition in the medical center. "My heart just goes out to their three daughters," said the Rev. Wayne F. Jagow, their minister at Concordia Evangelical Lutheran Church in Wilson. "They're grieving on one side and having hope on the other. What a tension, in terms of emotions." The Grawes were riding their motorcycle in Depew on Monday when the vehicle was struck broadside by a car at George Urban Boulevard and Transit Road shortly before 11 p.m. Witnesses have told police that the car went through a red light before striking the Grawes' motorcycle. The driver of the car, Jacob A. Hirsch, 19, of Depew, has been charged with two counts of vehicular assault, authorities said. Other possible charges are pending. Following the accident, family members converged on the Trauma Intensive Care Unit in ECMC, where Franziska Grawe remained sedated in one room with a severe head injury, while her nearby husband was conscious before his condition got worse. "When we went up there, he was aware what was going on, even though he couldn't communicate," Jagow said. "His daughters explained that things were OK with Fran. At one point, he was getting very agitated, because he wanted more information on her." Even after Daniel Grawe's death, the hospital vigil continued by his wife's bedside late Thursday. "This is one layer of tragedy upon another layer," Jagow said. "No matter what happens with Fran, this is a family that has been shattered by an irresponsible act."
