A dear reader writes in with a harrowing tale from last week:
i was on my motorcycle, riding south down guerrero toward 22nd st. when a white SUV pulled a u-turn from the right lane in front of me. I braked, but slammed into his left side with the right side of my body, and then it drove off. this was right in front of The Liberties (and one of their staff, a woman with long blonde hair, was one of the first people at my side) around 10pm on Tuesday night.
I am writing this for two reasons:
one — to see if anyone has seen a white Jeep Cherokee with damage on its left side? if the other driver is not found, then i am out of pocket for all expenses for my health and to fix my moto, and i do not have much in my pockets.
two — to thank the people who stopped to help me, the staff member from the liberties, the police and EMTs who took care of me on the scene, and the nurses, x-ray techs, and doctors at SF General’s ER who were so kind, calm, and helpful. they made a very scary situation bearable, and i appreciate all of their skill and wish to thank them from the bottom of my heart. these are the real heros of the city.
Glad to hear she’s alive and well, but hopefully someone will be able to provide more information that brings the driver to justice because this is a really sucky situation. Anyone who has more info should reply in the comments and she will get back to you.
