Last Monday I was rear ended while driving (not riding thank God!). Some stupid kid decided he wanted to be a racecar driver. He hit me while I was going 40-45mph changing lanes, from behind. I remember the kid coming out of nowhere, 2 seconds before that he wasn't anywhere near me, not even in my mirrors! I don't know the full story b/c the police report isn't finished but I do know that my car is totalled... we went to get the stuff out of it two days later and assess the damage... The bumper was in my trunk... and the wheels were touching the front of the wheel wells! From what Brad heard, the cops said he had to have hit me at, at least, 60mph. and I guess he had enough momentum to hit my car and continue skidding into the median to hit a sign and a bush.
So one concussion and several soft tissue/muscle injuries later... here I am... another six months of physical therapy and more shots!
Keep it real, keep it safe! Watch out for stupid teens who think they're in Fast and the Furious Part 4!
glad to hear that you're ok for the most part. sorry about your car and that you will miss out on riding for the rest of the season. I'm really glad that you were not on your bike when this ass hat hit you, that would not have been very good at all. get well and take care of yourself so you can get back out riding next season.
Glad to see you are here to write about it. My friend was hit by the same kind of driver as he sat at a stop light, 7yrs later, still in therapy. Lucky to be alive thought as they estimated the speed of the kid at 100mph plus!!!
