Knocked down by bike


Doing the karen cheng pose...injured

While running this morning, I was knocked down by a bike. Partly my fault, because I didn't scanned the rear view before going into a 90 degrees turn. I don't usually do it, because seldom traffic goes straight, which leads into a housing area with security.

The guy on the bike, was the security guard at that place.

It happened so fast, the next second, I was on the road. After the impact, he was almost off balance, but manage to get things under control. Immediately seeing my injuries, I am pretty sure PD is gone. I sat for awhile grimacing in pain.

My right thigh got a direct hit, and my left wrist have hairline fracture, and swollen. My left knee was also bleeding from scrapping the tarmac. I knew I got hit hard, because I was having fainting feeling going on.

I asked the guy for a lift, and amazingly his answer was that he can't, because the bike belong to the company. I've no mood to protest. So he dropped me by his friend who was gracious to send me back home.

At home, i realize my left wrist was swollen. Not good, so I asked a friend to HUKM. I had 2 x rays, and lucikly no major bone fracture at the femur or wrist. Another2nd opinion with a chinese doc, said I have hairline fracture at the left wrist.

At the moment, I am typing using one hand. I will need some good recovery.

Sorry to hear that. Hope you rest well and take care. It could've been worse.

Reminds us all that we need to be extra careful on the road. Even that is sometimes compromised, as you know when we're already fatigued and disoriented.
