Sitting behind a car at Scott Rd. 88th waiting to turn left at 9:20pm tonight and all of a sudden I'm airborne and hitting the pavement. Laid there for a bit with a banged up leg/back etc.
Long story short, Cops and paramedics came but the guy who hit me took off AND the car I got rammed into took off! WTF?! Thanks a lot assholes! Thankfully a couple of nice guys got me and the bike to the sidewalk. Oh and they also got the plate number of the guy who hit me - cops are coming for you mofo! Bike was rideable and I limped it home.
I'm feeling worse by the hour and thinking a few thoughts like: I was squiding it earlier today and thank god this time I was geared up! I was actually in gear on the brakes at the light instead of my usual casual backward, neutral 'lean.' If I was upright, the hit would have kicked my ass even worse! All in all I got lucky and I didn't see it coming at all - yes, it happened SO FREAKIN FAST!
