Crazy Italian Drivers!

Don't worry, he is fine, but Reamer got hit by a car. He was doing a mountain biking PT and followed the PT leader the wrong way down a one way street. I have already established that Italians are crazy drivers and obviously this is true.

Against Reamer's better judgement, he followed the guy leading the PT down a one way street the wrong direction. A guy was speeding around a corner and didn't have time to stop before hitting him. Apparently, Reamer flew over the car and landed on his head. Luckily he was wearing his helmet.

Reamer's mountain bike is completely totaled. He broke his baby toe and has some minor scratches/bruises. He says that he feels fine other than being a little sore. He is upset about the bike, especially since it is his main way of transportation. I'm sure that he will buy a new one as soon as possible (despite the crappy exchange rate!).

Seriously, he is fine. So don't worry. I guess the major lesson here is to wear our helmets at all times, and follow all traffic laws at all times, no matter what!

I'm glad to hear that he's okay. It's still so scary though.

I'm glad Reamer is not more seriously injured. What in the world? Who was leading PT? IS Reamer going to get a fine? If he did any damage to the Italian car he could be liable.
