On the morning of June 25, I experienced a serious bicycle crash going downhill within the Shorecliffs development.
I am told that I was conscious and speaking to people; however, due to a concussion, I have no recollection of the incident or anyone who helped. The following details are what I am told. So, I wanted to reach out and thank all of you wonderful people who stopped to assist, starting with the gentleman on the bicycle who came up the hill from PCH and stayed with me while a woman drove my husband home to get his car.
Next, I am told a doctor was driving down the hill and stopped to examine me and was smart enough to call 911. I am told there were people from two more cars offering assistance. Finally, I want to thank the ambulance attendants, and I was at least able to contact a deputy who was present due to having her card.
If I missed anyone, please forgive me. I am very beat-up and spent several days in the hospital, but I’m walking and talking and forever grateful to all of you who assisted. Bless you for caring.
