Cyclist Hit at Ludlow and East Houston Last Night
A rather uncharacteristic Missed Connection post published to Craigslist last night details an accident at the junction of Ludlow and East Houston just an hour earlier. According to this Good Samaritan on scene, a male cyclist was struck by a car that reportedly turned onto Ludlow “without signaling.” Injuries sustained are unclear, but it appears the victim survived.
Her eyewitness report reads as follows:
I told you I knew First Aid. You thought your clavicle was broken. I didn’t think it was, but you seemed to be in shock. I didn’t want to push it (you, your clavicle, your health, or myself), so I ran and bought you an ice pack instead. I’d had a drink and was easily abducted by my friend, who deemed me as done being “heroic” since the ambulance had arrived. I just want to know if you’re okay. Or if you need a witness– the car that hit you definitely turned without signaling, which was almost as startling to us as the sound of your beautiful bike being broken in half by the impact.
Your eyes seemed clear and you seemed to be able to move, so I’m hoping you only had mild abrasions requiring perhaps a few sutures at most. If by chance you ever see this, please let me know you’re alright.
Please drop a line if you have more information!
