I was going to joke about okay, now you’ve seen me so you’ve pretty much seen his face, too.

But the car didn’t.

My big brother whose face I compared mine to yesterday was riding a bike today on a beautiful day after work and a car came speeding without looking. Morgan shouted and the driver matched his frantic yanking of the wheels to avoid the hit.

And just just just avoided a strike from the car but not the one with the pavement from that momentum mismatch.

As he lay in the road people came to his rescue–except the driver, who hesitated and then took off.

Three broken ribs, and another one cracked, along with his shoulder.

But he’s alive and himself and will heal and yay for helmets and as he dryly noted, his bike is okay.

Praise be.

So glad your brother is going to be ok. Grateful people were there to help. I have a friend who was hit by a driver who ran a stop sign. She survived. Her bike did not. She’s not been able to ride a bike since, as it’s physically painful.

Oh good Lord! I’m glad Morgan is ok – and you look mahvelous, as Billy Crystal would say!

Dumb driver, taking off like that. Ugh. Some people. Thank the heavens and the engineers for helmets, indeed!

Oh, my goodness! I’m so glad it wasn’t worse, but how awful.

Your brother must be a pretty good looking guy! 😀

So glad the accident wasn’t any worse!

Shame on the driver of the car.

Oh how frightening! I’m so glad he is ok, even if a bit broken. He will be feeling rough for a while, but he will heal. I will hold him in prayer.

Might sound crazy, but I feel sorry for the driver. Not enough humanity to face the music and someday that will catch up with him.

Lovely darling! Your hair just frames your face!

Oh no! That sounds very painful for your brother. Hoping his recovery is smooth and easy. And you look wonderful! Have a great day!

The hair cut is great!

Yikes! Glad your brother wasn’t hurt worse, but those broken ribs and shoulder will take some time to heal (speaking from experience with broken ribs).

Sad that the driver couldn’t own up to and face their responsibility in the accident.

I bet Chris is right about that driver. Your brother will heal a lot faster. So sorry he has to, but glad he will be able to.

I’m glad Morgan wasn’t hurt any worse. The driver is probably suffering now wondering what happened.
