A friend of mine had a pretty good crash going down a hill a couple of weeks ago. She got some good road rash, gashed her elbow open, but I think this photo testifies to the reason she's still alive.
The Flickr link to the photo.
The had a CAT scan done and, apparently, her noggin is fine.
Anyone else have any photos of helmets that have given their lives to save the cyclists they alighted on?
Mods, I just realized this would probably be better in the "Advocacy and Safety" forum. Please feel free to move it and delete this note.
