Got Hit By a Car
Readers of this blog will remember that I was hit by a truck a few years ago. That was on my bike, and it was no joke - landed me in an ambulance, thankfully without any broken bones (but a mild concussion).
Today it was a car's turn, and on my feet instead of my bike.
4-way stop. I was running on the sidewalk, paused as I approached. He stopped, I started going in the crosswalk in front of his car and inexplicably he started going again! Luckily he hit the brakes just as he hit me, so I fell hands-first onto the hood but didn't take a directly hit to my legs (at least not hard enough to leave a mark).
Younger guy, I ripped a strip out of him then went on my way. Got his plate, reported it, so life goes on.
Be careful out there!
