Bob Bacon Injured in Accident
Bob Bacon, a long time member of our LT family as well as a CCR Board member, went down on his LT Monday morning commuting on 880 through Oakland, CA. According to what his friend Ken told me, he developed some kind of shimmy in the bike (possibly loss of tire pressure, unknown what happened at this point) and he went down on the freeway in traffic, sliding down the roadway. During the course of this a car ran over Bob's legs, breaking his right thigh and effectively crushing his left ankle. He has had surgery and they have pinned his thigh and ankle back together, but the long term prognosis is unclear at this point as far as next steps and his path to recovery.
Bob is in Eden Valley Medical Center in Castro Valley, CA., where they expect him to stay for at least the next 5 days. I just spoke with him and he's awake, but on pretty heavy medication so not able to communicate too well. I plan on going to see him tomorrow morning, and I'll post an update if I get any more information.
Please have Bob in your thoughts and prayers as he starts his recovery process.
