Jon Morgan was riding eastbound on 161 this morning. Approaching Patterson Road to his right, a westbound car turned in front of Jon, making it uncomfortably close. Immediately thereafter, an eastbound, white truck swerves around Jon and turns in front of him, giving Jon no option but to collide into the back end. The driver stopped, could not explain his actions but was clearly shaken. Doing a quick check of bike and body, Jon was surprisingly ok as was his bike other than a brake adjustment. He rode back to New Albany and to work. Later, feeling a little stiff he went to the ER but he is ok and may be out for the Thursday NA ride. Very, very fortunate outcome.

Thanks Cindy. He turned in front of me with virtually no time to react. I didn't see him coming until I was riding into his truck. My Strava said I was going 18.8mph when I hit him. Kind of like riding into a wall at full speed, bouncing off and then bouncing off of the ground. I'm very thankful to be ok. Just before this happened, I was noticing how aggressive drivers are in the morning on the way to work....
