I was riding my wr250r to work yesterday and as I was turning left into my work driveway the gentleman behind me decided to gun it and pass me. He nailed me on my left side flipping me onto his hood and then onto the side of the road. I immediately gave myself a quick self check and saw my left leg had gone rag doll beneath the knee. The guy that hit me got out of his car and was frantic. He was yelling oh god I'm going to prison for the rest of my life for this. Please sir don't tell them what happened. I was like dude I am seriously injured please call 911. He did not so I got my phone from my jacket pocket and placed the call myself but wasn't able to communicate with 911 because my helmet was still on. Thankfully another gentleman arrived and told me he was calling. About this time one of the cars that was stopped because of my accident ulled off and drove away. The frantic gentleman starting calling out that they were running. I'm like wtf dude you hit me. So after about 15 minutes the paramedics arrive and start working on me. I knew my leg was pretty bad but the rest of my body seemed ok. They called in for a helicopter so a little more waiting in the ambulance and then I was whisked away to the hospital. It was a compound fracture of my tibea and fibula and surgery was scheduled for yesterday afternoon. They inserted a rod into my tibia and I'm now stabilized. It was a rough night to say the least. :eek1 So cliff notes... I got hit and run from behind. Compound fracture. And the police don't seem real confident they will get him even though he was interviewed as a witness because it happened over a blind hill so the people behind him didn't see the accident only me flying onto his hood. My bike suffered very little damage. My leg seems to have bore the brunt of the impact. I remember the noise of my helmet impacting his hood but there is very little visible damage. It tore off my visor and scratched it up a little. I was wearing a Shoei Multitec and the modular front remained closed during the accident. My Tourmaster Epic jacket also came out with hardly a rash. I was wearing jeans but I honestly don't think any gear would have saved my leg. It was a solid direct impact. I'm scheduled to be released tomorrow. I feel fortunate to be alive!
