It happened again. I was riding at about 9 o'clock at night following my buddies to the mall for some ice cream. We were sitting in an intersection trying to make a left turn but since there were so many cars coming the opposite way, we had to wait for it to turn yellow and for all the cars coming to stop. My buddies made it through the intersection alright and when i looked at the cars opposite me they were all stopped or slowing down. Out of the corner of my eye I see the light turn red so I figured I had to be in the clear. All of a sudden one of the cars that was slowing down sped up and I heard her honk at me right before she slammed directly into my engine and send me flying over her car. I landed on my left side and luckily didnt hit my head or back (I was wearing a brand new helmet). I crawled over to the side of the road and laid down (this is a very busy road ) to wait for help. There were some retired paramedics and a few riders who ran to help me so I knew I was in good hands. At this point the girl had ran out of her car unscathed but freaking out and she proceeds to try and blame it all on me despite the fact that she ran the light. It was at that time that I learn that she is 16 years old and this was her first day of driving alone so I start feeling bad for her and try to calm her down to no avail. Now heres the F'd up part, the officer that arrived on scene charged both of us with guilt despite the fact that the girl admitted that when she saw me she closed her eyes and covered her face. There were no lock-up marks from her trying to brake (she kept going straight without slowing down or trying to swerve) and her cars position was perfectly in the lane that she hit me in so it was obvious she didn't try and avoid me at all. I sat at the hospital all night long having them take x-rays and ct scans to check for internal bleeding and apparently with the exception of my horribly bruised left side I am fine. My bike got :urowned by that car hardcore and when they dropped it off at my house, the engine was ripped out of its mounts. The thing that I simply don't understand is that where she impacted was directly where my right leg was but my leg is fine. It should be gone right now so I'm having sort of a pulp fiction moment with the whole divine intervention thing. I am going to see a lawyer this week after I get that crap police report so that I can get insurance from her insurance company since I only have liability and it was her goddamn fault. What sucks is I was riding the new Ducati that my dad just bought and it is jacked. I want a new motorcycle but now everyone is encouraging me to get a car so its all going to come down to whether I can conquer my fear of these morons that drive here. On the upside I have another set of hospital pj's to add to my collection .
