Initiation into the battered cyclist's club...

Sorry i have to vent somewhere. I had an accident on algonquin rd. during my commute by a driver that was trying to "teach me a lesson". He first pulled along side me yelling all kinds of obscenities then floored it to get in front of me so he could jam on the brakes. I was doing a good 22 mph at the time, needless to say i ended up on his trunk at which point he floored it again so i would eat the pavement. Now my left hip is the size of a grapefruit, so is my left elbow and wrist. luckily a witness chased after him and got his plates. So he will be arrested and charged. What could have possibly been going on in his head to try and kill or seriously injure me, i WILL go to court against this guy though. To not only purposely hurt someone but to then take off, i could never understand that mentality. According to the cop this is not, by far, the first time he's been arrested.

JC, please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. PLEASE NAIL THIS SOB! That is attempted homicide in my opinion. Get all over the police and DA and push to have this ******* nailed!

Give the witness a big pat on the back. I would certainly like to shake his hand. Too many losers in this world don't stand up against evil and he did.

Holy crap. That's absurd.

This SOB needs to get taken off the road. Hard.

Wow... I'm sorry what happened to you. I hope this guy is going to be locked away for a long time and bubba can tear him a couple of new a-holes.
Also, make sure his insurance (if he has insurance) is going to get milked so you can buy yourself a nice condo down the road.

Or go the southside Chicago and find a problem solver for hire.
It definitely would be better for society with this guy off the streets for good if you know what I'm saying.

At the very least I think we have reckless driving, assault & battery with a deadly weapon (car) and leaving the scene of an accident.

Nail that sucker. Please keep us posted on the details as this develops. I'm sure we'd all love to hear the results of this, and I'm sure we can all learn a lot from your experience. Glad you're reasonably OK, could have been much worse. Do you know exactly what he will be charged with yet?

So sorry to hear that you have to go through all this, but very glad that someone got his I.D.

Document your injuries, then heal well.

as far as i know the police said he'd at least be charged with reckless driving. I went over exactly what happened with the officer and he said they are gonna examine the car for any dents or marks i may have left. i am being advised to go to the hospitals in case i want to sue later but i know i am just bruised up. I am a naprapathic physician and know that i am not seriously injured enough to require hospital care. i will keep it updated here. as a sidenote my crappy xero wheels actually didnt crack. my helmet is destroyed though so i must have hit my head at some point.

Even though you are a naprapathic physician, at least have a colleague check you out and write a report about your condition. It will be one more piece of objective evidence against the driver you can admit in court. The more evidence to prove your case the better. This driver needs to be off the road.

Wha? Dude, i'd go see a doctor and document all the injuries just so I can sue his pants off later on.

I'd see a doctor and get something in writing. I was hit by a car in January, and though I was ok, but my finger was broken, which I discovered later.

Got to get that guy off the road and into road rage deprogramming! Hope you heal up soon.

I don't know how you guys do it up there in the nw subs.

My MIL lives on Lake-Cook across from Deer Park, SIL in Lake Barrington Shores, and BIL on Indian Trail Rd. Every time we come up for a visit I am amazed at the road and traffic conditions.

I have enough problems with the occasional a**h**** here in the corn fields and black top roads downstate. I'm afraid if I lived up in there I'd just hang up the bike!
