got hit by a minivan. When it hit me it didn't seem very "mini".
I was walking to Home Depot earlier today (only 5 blocks from my house). I was crossing at an intersection where a side street runs into a main road. I was about 1/4 of the way across the street when the van began slowing before pulling out into the main road. The driver didn't come to a complete stop for the stop sign. Only looked to the left because she was turning right and proceeded to hit me. She said later that she was late picking up her kids and in a hurry. Duh!!
When she hit me the right front tire ripped the skin off my right leg (from the knee to the ankle) just before running over my right foot. As the van continued turning it hit my left leg and tore some skin off the knee and then knocked me down. I'm glad she stopped and there was a witness who also stopped and called 911.
Luckily nothing is broken but my right leg and left knee are really sore.
I suppose tomorrow I'll know just how sore I'll be and how long I'll be out of the saddle.
