Please be careful out there
Earlier today I happened upon an accident scene, moments after the fact, involving what looked to be a 14-16 yr old kid on a bike and an SUV. The accident was within several hundred yards of a hopsital that my wife happens to be a memeer of the OR staff.
Things didn't look good, and last time I spoke with my wife, a few minutes ago, the kid hadn't gotten to the OR. There is another hospital near by, so it's possible they took him there. Seems unlikely with a major trauma unit that close though. Sadly, I don't think the kid made it.
I have no knowledge of the cirumstances surrounding the accident, since I got there after the fact. I do know that there was no helmet to be seen anywhere. Fault seems a trivial thing though, he was just a kid.
So anyway, please take care of yourselves out there.
