Accident on Parmer

Just got this in the email.

Ok, I was realeased from the hospital this evening (Friday?), and my wife will hopefully be released on Saturday. First off, we have every right to ride on any street in the state, but riding on Parmer, until Tuesday morning, is not a big deal. Nice wide shoulder so cars and bikes can get along. And actually riding at 5:30 in the morning is safer in my book when you have flashing lights on the back alerting automobiles that something is in front of them and the traffic volume is substantially less.
My flashing lights put out as much attention getting light as any automobile. There is no reason we should have not been seen (by) this lady driving down the shoulder to wipe us out. Believe me when I say it was an extremely unfortunate acccident, but it was by no means our falult. We are trying to get some excercise and have fun commuting to work and have followed all required laws to put the required type of lighting on my bike. It boils down to the fact that auto drivers, of which I am one too, need to pull their heads out, drive safely and realize that the 30 seconds that they are slowed down by a bike on a road somewhere is not the end of the world and and won't make them be late for that all important meeting!!

Sincerely,

Sam Hughes, battered and bruised and looking for a new tandem


I'm really glad to hear that Sam is doing okay, this happened right in front of my apartment complex. Sam is correct in the shoulders being wide, and there being no excuse why the lady hit them.

I just wanted to pass this along.

til next time

Thanks for posting this. I'd been wondering what the deal was with that accident.

I live in the neighborhood behind your apartment complex, and ride Parmer from time to time.

i didn't realize you lived up there. u should move more south so we can ride together! be careful up there...thought it was safer then that. but shit, after my scare last week, i realize all of austin is scary on bike due to careless cars.

CEO said...

Sam, I am glad to find this blog entry and see you and Angie are OK. You won't remember me, I was the 2nd person to arrive at the accident scene (on my way to work) and was there helping, talking to you and trying to give you and Angie some support while EMS arrived. And I am really glad that it all (appears) to be well w/ you and Angie. Cheers...

If any of you still check this I thought I would give an update. It is truely amazing the progress Angi has made and we took our first step on Saturday. She said we need to take a ride. We only rode about a mile around the neighborhood, but she got on the bike, with her shoes on and clipped in. It was not without major anxiety and quite a few tears, but she made it all the way and did not get off and walk home.

I did hit one bump that the jarring hurt her back, so I will had to watch for bumps better. She is actaully way ahead of my hopes of getting back on the bike in June or July!!! What a womam!!!!

Thanks,

Sam
