I saw a rather disturbing thing on the way home from work today. In the middle of the four lane road was a crumpled bike next to an equally crumpled rider with body contorted in a very unnatural position and not moving. The police and emergency people had just arrived and were doing their thing. I wonder if this was a hit and run. I don't recall seeing any other vehicle stopped anywhere near the scene.

You have to admire EMTs and police officers whose duty it is to respond to such situations as this. I know I certainly could not do it, being the first responder and not knowing what's awaiting you and just how messy things might be.

Anyway, just a random observation from the ride home.
