My Road ID saved me when I was knocked unconscious

by ROAD iD Staff May 19, 2021

I love your product! It saved me when I was knocked unconscious during a race. I don't remember much about what happened, but I'm told that someone behind me fell, and took my feet out in the process. I cracked my head on the pavement and fell unconscious. Thank goodness I was wearing my Road ID- the first responders used my Interactive ID to find out my identity and some very crucial medical information.  They knew who I was and that I needed specific care. I'm not sure what would have happened if I WASN'T wearing ID, and I don't intend to find out!  I will always always run with my Road ID...no matter how long or short the run, or how many times I have run the same route. 

Update: I came out of the hospital with a concussion, broken rib, and a jarred neck. Thankfully, I'm back to running and was still able to run the Boston Marathon. When I run or bike, I never ever go without my Road ID. If I forget it, I go back for it. Keep up the great work - without you guys I would be lost!
