I left work on July 29 around 11:30PM and didn't get home for another 19 days. I managed to get hit by a car about 10 minutes after leaving from work. Some background; it was night time, it was raining (moderately) when I left; I was told that the rain increased to a heavy down pour about the time of the accident? I was riding with lights fore and aft. Light & Motion arc hid light very bright and two super blinkies's on the rear. I haven't any recollection of the accident or the for next 48 hrs either. I was conscious enough to tell the police who I was and where I lived at the scene. The final tally was numerous broken ribs, clavicle, shattered scapula, punctured lung and numerous cuts minor fractures to my face. I'm home now healing for what I hope will be a complete recovery although that isn't a certainty. I'm making plans to buy another bike, mine is too damaged. I should say that the car that struck me was traveling from the opposite direction and was crossing my lane to enter a parkway onramp when we collided. I don't know what if anything you will learn that may help you avoid the same fate except my wife feels I should have had her pick me up that night. I traveled the same road every work day and although I don't remember the accident I know enough to realise if the driver didn't see me coming there isn't anything I could do. I always felt I would get hit one day, I had too many close calls to think it would never happen. Now I hope I never have another one because I was lucky to survived this time. I loved my rides to and from work and had been doing it for over a year riding in all seasons. That's my story, I'll let you know how I'm doing as I recover. By the way I'm open to suggestions for a new bike. I was riging a Surly LHT and probably will buy another because I was very happy with it.
