survivor's guilt

survivor's guilt...
post traumatic stress disorder...

an article in SF GATE about the cyclist that survived an accident where a police cruiser ran him over as well as two others
the two others died
which leaves this young german man with some invisible injuries caused by his survival while others perished

Came upon the aftermath of a car-bike accident this morning on the Custis Trail through Rosslyn. Fire engine, ambulance, cop cars, the whole works. Dude was taken to the hospital.

A witness (another cyclist) said the injured cyclist clearly had the right-of-way, but the commercial van driver was hellbent on making an illegal right turn on a red and never saw the cyclist approaching.

Those intersections along Route 29 are scary...something needs to change there.

Here's to hoping the cyclist recovers fully and quickly.
