MADISON, Wis. -- A delivery truck ran over a cyclist's head, leaving him only with a concussion and a mangled helmet. Ryan Lipscomb, 26, was shaken up, especially after he saw the condition of his helmet.
"I didn't see it coming, but I sure felt it roll over my head," he said. "It feels really strange to have a truck run over your head."
Lipscomb, a graduate student in medical physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, was riding swiftly down a bike path in Madison Friday afternoon. As he approached an intersection where he said he had a green light, he noticed the truck preparing to make a right turn in front of him.
The truck wasn't going to stop, Lipscomb said, so he slammed on his brakes, flipping his bike and landing in the street.
A moment later the truck rolled over his head - and kept going.
His black Giro helmet was flattened, tread marks visible on the cracked frame.
