I was hit by a car on my motorcycle

Recently, I was hit by a car while riding my motorcycle to work.  It was 3 PM on a beautiful day when an oncoming driver made a left across my path, as if I was not there.  The ambulance came - and away I went to the hospital.  Due to the nature of my injuries, it was hard for me to speak.  I felt like I had all the wind  knocked out of me. 

The medics were asking me questions about allergies, emergency contacts, medical history, etc.  So, I just gave them my FIXX Road ID that I was wearing around my neck.

Sadly, I won't be riding again soon.  But once I can, I'll definitely be sporting my Road ID gear.  In fact, my Tri-club is now encouraging all of us to wear one.  Thank you!
