Update on Brian White
It's been about a month since Brian White was struck from behind by what is likely a Ford F150 pickup truck so I thought it would be a good time to check in on him. Brian is in good spirits, off the pain meds and working part time. He is going through rehab on an arm and both legs. He gets tired when standing and stiff when sitting but progress is being made and he is certain he will be back on a road bike early '16. Meantime, he has a mountain bike set on a trainer and riding that while shopping for a new road bike which is likely to be a Ti frame. The list of injuries from the crash was long, ranging from 5 broken ribs to an 8" x 2" gash in his leg from where the pedal impacted. A nurse at the hospital gave him the nickname "eggplant" because of his bruised appearance. The only bad news is it is unlikely the driver of the truck will be caught, without a break in the case such as a drunken confession in the vicinity of others. With over 400, F150 trucks within a reasonable radius of the incident, it's too many for the issuance of search warrants. Brian and his wife have a healthy attitude and feel blessed that Brian survived what was likely an impact at 55mph. On a related note, Mitch Tallan is up and walking I believe unassisted so that too is good news.
