When I was a kid we did not have bike helmets. We would slam on our front brakes of our 3 speed bikes and go ass over teakettle onto the pavement. Heck I was hit by a car when I was 11 years old. I had an old banana seat bike that I road everywhere on the Cape. I still have the front wheel of the bike. It was traumatic but not nearly as traumatic as this story.
All I can say is holy crap. I cannot imagine having a truck run over your head and survive it. I guess bike helmets work.
I wear one now. Not because of the story, I’ve been wearing one for a while, probably after they started looking more sleek and less geek.
