If I could walk that way...
Last week the bus I was riding to work on t-boned an SUV. I was startled, but otherwise fine after that. This week, while riding my bicycle home from work, I was crossing a street on the green when someone driving an SUV decided that was the perfect time to make a right turn on red. It knocked me off of my bicycle and I twisted my knee, but other than that and a few minor bruises and scrapes there was no real damage done. So if you see me walking with a limp during the next week or so now you know why.

I'm hoping that this isn't one of those things that "runs in threes" because I really don't want any more accidents involving me and an SUV.

Bring a pocket camera, and get their license plate.

I was going to suggest "drive only bulldozers", but no reason he can't do both.

I certainly hope there is no #3 coming! I try not to stereotype, really I do, but it seems to me that a disproportionate amount of the "I own the road, the heck with you" driving I see comes from drivers of SUVs.

You've been in the vehicle that hit the SUV and been hit by the SUV - that leaves being the person who is driving the SUV - and that seems extremely unlikely. So hopefully you are safe.

I'm glad you were not hurt any more than you were.

Uh, yes. Don't do that one. That sounds like no fun. I'm so glad you weren't hurt any worse.

I'm sorry to hear about the limp! And be careful on the roads. :)
