But guys? Even when *you* are doing everything right? Shit goes wrong.
I happened to look out my window at work yesterday, and noticed a group of people standing in the middle of the street. I squinted, and realized one of those people was on the ground, performing CPR on another human. Hol-ee shit.
I watched as cops and medics arrived. I listened on the police scanner (a local news station streams it) as the cops and medics radioed Harborview and described the person's condition. He was biking along northbound - in a VERY clearly marked bike lane - when someone driving south decided to turn left at a high rate of speed, t-boning him.
He passed away today.
I've been shaken up for almost 24 hours now. To see that all unfold - to hear the measures being taken to save his life and the massive search for the asshole driver who barely stopped & fled the scene - well. Shit got real.
So please. PLEASE. Be alert. Keep your eyes open. Be safe out there guys. :\
