Please, be careful

A friend of mine, Anthony,

was hit on Sunday September 9th at Van Ness and Grove by a truck and was a victim of a hit and run. He was Hit so hard he was up on the hood for 80 feet and when he hit the ground his shoes where in seperate places no where near eachother. He suffered from a collapsed lung, two broken ribs, broken vertabre, broken femur, smashed kidney and countless abbrations. He's finally out of the hospital (Oct. 2) and home with family almost a month later.

Anthony is a bike messenger and friend to many of us in the bike community. Thanks to Victims of Crime all his hospital bills are covered. Thank God.

Be careful out there, whether you are on two wheels or four. Keep your eyes sharp and watch out for each other.

Anthony, again...

And his bike (enlarge to see how trashed it is)...
