Well it happened to me on May 24th but I just got outta the hospital Yesteterday.
I was on my way to work it was just a little after 6:05 am on the brisk morning after our long weekend.
I was travelling down sw marine when I looked down at my speed cause the other side of the little hill cops always camp out. I was doing 53kph safe!
Look up theres a blue camaro that decided he would run the light at 70th and tunr left onto marine. I guess he didnt see me coming. I didnt have much time to react. I was in far left lane in lp1 could't make it around the back of him. 2 Choices left t bone him or scoot around the front. I think I could have made it around the front of him but then I would have had oncoming traffic to deal with at marine (which I was on) had the green and not the yahoo in the camaro. So I decided just hit him. He had his arm out bracing for impact and I hit right by his door.
I didnt want the impact to suddenly stop me cause I thought that would kill me soo as soon as I hit the car I jumped. From what I can remember my right leg hit the corner of the roof and I slid up dragging the rest of my leg. They said I felw 27ft before I hit the ground. Then I slid a lil.
Broken right femur now I have a 40cm rod insid of it.
Right knee fuggered got a big surgery taking part of my hamstring to repair the ligaments.
then a huge lasteration on my chin.
I was wearing a helmet (which got rashed bad I must have done a huge face plant)
icon gloves andsome sidi boots.
The right boot leather got puntured in 2 spots tore the stiching and broke part of thetoe slider off. As well as the impact spot on the chin that chattered and coincides with where U have a huge cut on my chin I guess im spelling that wrong i mean below my knee not my face oh shit shin im too drugged to go back and fix it all.
oh i also got some very small road rash on my left hand and a little bit like quater sise on my right hip. I needed 2 blood transfusions
Other than that I am all right. Which is pretty good considering what happend. I must say my helmet worked wonders no pain no sratches nothing necks not even sore I am a lucky boy to even be alive.
Now I have been riding mx since I was 4 years old. This should just go out as a warning to others. IT doesnt matter how good you are. Sometime it just doesnt matter and it really is the other persons fault.
Had I not been wearing as much gear I would have been toast esp my boots.
also to all those yahoos wearing the beanies Well your beyond words for me its your head.
Not trying to make this a bash idiot squids I have been a squid many times myself just another eye opener as there seems to be a rise in accidents lately.
Every time you go out expect at least 3 cars to do something to try and kill you it just happens that way.
Every one be safe and I'll see you back on the road next year.
