Cyclist hit in Friendship @Coral & S. Pacific (9.11.14)

Saw this via Nextdoor... happened sometime before 9:30 this am. "There was another accident at the Bottom Dollar corner this AM, this time with a bicyclist. I did see two ambulances and several police cars immediately respond. " "When I returned home later this morning, two women were putting the bike into a car and it turns out that one of them is the wife of the man who was hit. He is OK-ish, but will likely need surgery for some fractures in his face. " That's all the details so far. Nothing on the PG or any tv news sites.

That would be me. I'm fine, sore bruised up, etc. I won't get into details right now as I'm not sure how is going to be handled yet. The worst part is I heard they brought someone into the hospital earlier who got hit and then while I was being transferred to Presby word came over the radio in the ambulance someone got hit on Centre. Stay safe out there.

Just wanted to add a few things I forgot to mention. First, the police, fire, and ems personnel were all top notch and were there within minutes. Second, wear a damn helmet. I looked at mine today and can see where it is dented and the inner foam cracked absorbing the shock, saving my noggin and quite possibly my life.

I'm glad you are still with us Lou. And it's a testimony to your hard-cyclist status: he's OKish, with some face fractures. Ouchie! Heal fast.
