The hospital was able to contact my wife

by ROAD iD Staff May 20, 2021

A few weeks after I purchased my Road ID, I was involved in a serious cycling accident. I was participating in a road race out of town, when another rider lost control and took down about 5 people, including me.

I did not lose consciousness, but I had a broken clavicle, 3 broken ribs, and shortness of breath dueto a further lung complication. I was immediately taken by helicopter to a hospital 45 miles away from the crash site.

Thanks to my Road ID, the paramedics and hospital staff had access to my wife's phone number, my blood type, and information about my insurance plan. I now wear my Road ID at all times, even when I’m not riding my bike. Thank you for making such a great product.

UPDATE: I'm all healed up, teaching spin classes again, and riding outside (on a new bike -- the crashed one was beyond repair). Thanks, again!
