Lynne Hit by a Car Whilst Riding Her Bike

Lynne was very lucky she did not get seriously injured today. It was a great day so she headed out for a bike ride. As she rode along the main road, a car approached from a side street and pulled into the road right in front of her. The driver was turning left and was looking right as he veered way to far out into the main road. He never saw Lynne and she crashed right into him, was thrown from her bike over the hood of the car and landed out in front of the his car into the middle of the road.

She has some bruising on her thigh right above her knee where she got tangled up with her handlebars but other than this she is fine. It could have been a lot worse. She is a little shell shocked of course but ok. Her leg will be sore for quite some time. We’re both so grateful that this incident didn’t cause any significant injury.

The picture shown below is from a bike ride we did in 2003 but she did have that bike jersey on today.

Sounds like a lucky escape. Rest up, and you will be back in the saddle again soon.
