Hang in there man.

You are going to set the TSA checkpoint magnetometer off when you get out of your car in the parking lot. We are all pulling for you! It is great to read you are progressing. :clap

270 is crazy

I live in Baltimore, use the Inter-county Connector and go down 270 frequently. Cage drivers are aggressive, distracted and stupid. I hope he gets better soon.

Were you by yourself?

If you were by yourself, did you have plenty of water? SPOT? etc? Kinda risky if you were solo.

Why would you put your helmet on, and not fasten the strap? Glad you are relatively OK.

Hit and run drivers suck twice

This pretty much does it for me. I am getting a helmet camera. In Baltimore and DC, I have no doubt that someone that did this would just drive away. Probably oblivious that they caused an accident.

You went left.

So you went to the left because you hoped your friend would stop. It was a 50/50 shot. It looks like he spun out. You are lucky. You do not get many freebies in life. I am glad you are OK.
