What can YOU say in six sentences?
Now I know exactly why deer stand still in the face of oncoming traffic.
My gut instinct was to stop. That's what it said, and in the milliseconds before the car hit me, all I heard was screaming brakes from his car and all I did was pull the handlebar brakes on my bicycle for dear life.
So I stopped in front of a car careening down the road toward me at 25 mph.
I have never been more grateful for a helmet and strong bones, and I have never experienced more tender care than that given me by the six random strangers who ran out to help.
And I have never heard such relief as when I called the 19 year old driver to tell him I was (and am) perfectly okay.
