Crashes galore.. NOW ride from Santa Monica and bad crash on Topanga

First of all there was a crash on NOW road ride (7th and Montana in Santa Monica) about 5 mile from the start. Group slowed down and someone locked out front wheel and endoed on the asphalt, about 10 people piled up on him..
No broken bones, but facial and leg scarring..

At the same time..

There was also a big pileup crash in Topanga today on descent. My friends I ride with sometimes crashed into the ambulance on the turn at 35 miles an hour because there was an ambulance to block their way, assisting another rider who crashed and broke his leg and wrist. My friends got beat up pretty badly. One got air evac'd to UCLA. another one broke his back and another one walked away with soft tissue injuries. What a day@

I believe NOW is a cycling club in that area. Holy smokes - air evac'd and a broken back. That's no joke. Hope they emerge okay! Scary.
