After the Crash: Five Things to Do

“I walked away from this without a scrape, scratch or bruise,” says our friend James. “Saw her in my mirrors coming up behind me as I was slowing for a fire truck backing out onto the road ahead of us. I got knocked off the bike, but was accelerating away when she hit, so the impact was minor. We both were lucky. The maddening thing was that when I walked back to her car after getting up off the ground, she motioned for me to wait till she finished her phone call.”
