A few minutes ago I spoke with a friend of the 52 year old bicyclist who was critically injured by a hit and run driver on September 24th. Having read yesterday's blog post about the incident, the man, Joe, wanted to let readers of this blog know that his friend remains in the hospital recovering from his injuries. On September 25th, an anonymous comment was left on this blog stating that the cyclist had "apparently died." Thankfully, that seems not to be the case.
The bicyclist still has a long road toward recovery, Joe said. He sustained a serious head injury and has endured at least 8 hours of brain surgery. After the collision the injured man's condition was touch and go to the point that a priest was brought to his hospital bed to administer Last Rites.
Police are still looking for the driver. Click here to read more about this incident.
