I went out early to get a quick ride in on the Schuylkill River Trail this morning. Saw a kid in a bike seat drop a tennis ball and a rider on a Scott TT bike hit it at over 25 MPH. It was not a pretty site. Luckily the rider flipped over onto the grassy side of the path. The bike was toast. Front wheel now looks like a pretzel, fork broken, handlebar broken, and seat stay and chain stay on the drive side both cracked. Rider was shaken up, appears nothing on him broken, and he even avoided road rash. Other than the loss of a bike costing several thousand dollars he was lucky. The kid and his mother (I assume) never knew what havoc was caused.
