pic of burn from moped crash

Crisis Cincinnati took this picture of Matt's ankle, after a car slammed into Matt's side when he was riding his Puch. The engine cylinder head burned the hell out of his ankle in the split second they touched, before Matt was thrown off the bike.

Check out the swelling of the ankle. His knee has greater swelling.

Matt gets better every day, and Cincinnati moped enthusiasts are still riding as often as we can.

yee haw, and thank you Crisis for the picture

That will leave an interesting scar. I'm glad thats not as bad as it could have been (no protruding bones and such)

Brian,

I feel your pain. : )

There is no avoiding a car pulling through a stop sign and nailing you. :)

Chris,

Good point!

I guess we are left with:

Never assume the car will give you the right of way.

Wear ankle boots and heavy jeans.

Sue the bastards. : )

Ron, that was Matt from Cincinnati who got hit by the car, just to clarify, but yeah he got hit directly from the side by a car.

The interesting thing is that he got hit on the LEFT side, and that's his right ankle. The bike slammed to the right so hard, it did that, all before throwing him off the ped.

but yeah, the driver's been cited, so sue, sue, sue

Brian,

Yes, I realized that Matt was the victim and Cris the photographer. It is strange how injuries can occur in a crash that seem illogical at first.

Check Matt's right sneaker for evidence that it was pinned to the ground momentarily, that would allow the weight of the ped to imprint the cylinder in his ankle and wrench his knee befor throwing him off.

I'll post a picture of my leg later-- it's still a pretty gross open wound, and it happened in August--!

I'm a scarred up mess, but it's cool; Chicks dig Scars!

After you win the lawsuit... of course

Re: pic of burn from moped crash

Yeah, Ron, that definitely could have been what happened.

Crazy what can happen, and boots and good pants are definitely a good idea. We all keep telling Matt he's fortunate, could have been worse.
