    I got nailed

    I finally got computer access in my hospital room, so I had to post.

    My hometown paper (not the city I live in) wrote an article on it http://www.morganton.com/servlet/Sat...=1149191031974

    I'm getting transferred to a rehab program to get me back to functiional tomorrow.

    At least I've now got some funky scars!

    I just re-read the article. Doesn't sound like the cops are going to do anything!

    Holy moses! VERY VERY glad you survived that one. Christ.. I hope they get the damn driver. Its good that they specifically said you ran lights and all.

    Having survived a high speed accident today, I'm glad I walked away.

    Wow! Glad you're alive, keep in there!

    About the cops not doing anything, we should all write emails to his local police dept. complaining about the lack of attention to bike/car related accidents or something.

    Jeeze, a torn aorta. My stubbed big toe can't compete with that. Hope they don't mock your pain in rehab by making you ride one of those stationary bicycles with a leather strap around the front wheel.

    Wow, talk about beating the odds. Get well soon dude and hope they catch the car that nearly put you out for the count. Tell anyone who will listen that you want this car found.
