He is ok other than some bruises and pain. He went with husband on his jogging trip. difficult child was riding his bike and crossing the entrance to our local mini-mall. Apparently the lady made no attempts to stop or hit the gas instead of the break, so even the police have no idea what happened. He ended up flying on to the hood of her car and then rolling back onto the ground. Ambulance, fire truck and police all showed up. They told him and husband if he hadn't been wearing his helmet...well it would have been a different situation. The helmet is seperated and broken, where she hit him on his bike is indented a good inch (the metal frame!) Their is much damage to the womans car, some of it was the toll of difficult child's body. husband is coping, he saw it all. difficult child doesn't really want to talk about it, he says it was too scary. easy child just wants to know why everything bad happens to him. My heart is heavy, I know it could have been worse. husband said we will probably not press charges, I just want to know how you can miss my kid in the total open!!!!! I am so angry! Please, please, please make sure your kids wearing their helmets when biking. This could have been a totally different post if it wasn't for him wearing it.
