... Here's just one more and then I'll shut the fuck up.
A good friend of mine, Jess, is searching for witnesses to a bike wreck that took place on 12th Ave at roughly 5:45 p.m. on June 8.
For a full rundown of the accident, check out Seattle Bike Blog. The long and short of it is, Jess was riding southbound in the bike lane near Seattle University, headed towards Marion Street, when a driver opened his door into the bike lane and doored her. The problem is, she passed out briefly when her helmeted head hit the ground and admits that the details of the accident are fuzzy (although she distinctly remembers being doored), so police decided to take the driver's word—corroborated by his wife/passenger—on what happened.
Their story basically is, "she spontaneously fell next to our open car door."
Without witnesses, the driver won't be held responsible for fracturing Jess's wrist and elbow, or for damaging her bike. So: If you happened to be around SU on June 8 and see a pretty girl eat asphalt after being doored by a car, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
