Something You Don’t Want to See
Posted by chdot on January 4, 2008
A bike and rider lying on the road near The Meadows.
A concerned group of people surrounding: Two blocking the traffic, a taxi driver providing a first aid box and a blanket, a passing nurse administering the first aid, someone on a mobile to the ambulance service.
Mud? Ice? Slush? Another vehicle.
Eye witness reports of a loaded carrier bag swaying and straying into the front wheel’s spokes. Followed by a head-first somersault.
Traffic diverter says “My son carries things like that all the time”.
Ambulance arrives. The wounded walks, slowly.
