Re: I was hit by a car last night...
Sadness. I encountered a bit of slow traffic near an intersection today, and saw an ambulance and fire truck and several cruisers up ahead. Turns out yet another motorcyclist was killed on Kentucky Ave. again. As I was slogging by, I noticed the EMTs were just standing around. A person was on the ground in a funky bent-backwards position. A guy in a dress shirt with a black bag and other equipment was walking up. (I'm thinking "coroner".) And a guy in a crumpled Mini Cooper was being guarded by the cops, and looking like his life was over. After a while I looked in the rearview. No emergency vehicles had gone anywhere. The pieces of the puzzle didn't make for a very encouraging picture.
