My Brother got ran over by a pickup today, managed to come out with just a consussion
My little brother got ran over by a full-sized pick up today, literally knocked him out of his shoes. Lady was pulling out of a playground (!) ran the stopsign and right over my brother:aargh4:. He remembers seeing the truck and basically thinking "oh crap I'm getting hit" then waking up LITERALLY under the truck/engine. Since its hot out he was in shorts/tshirt so hes got "road rash" all over his arms and whatnot, and his shoulder is really sore. Got x-rayed and everything, no breaks. But he is really dizzy, doctors say he has a concussion.
It gets better,...
A cop WITNESSED the whole thing and didn't even write her a ticket :confused:. Let me get this straight, a lady RUNS a stop sign in a college town (JMU in Harrisonburg,Va. Kids walking around all the time, all over the place, VERY heavy traffic.) and hits a pedestrian. At the scene he didn't press charges, but he barely remembers anything from the scene or talking to the lady or anything. He has since called the LEO back and is pressing charges. Heres the thing though: According to the LEO, if he hadn't decided to press charges the lady wouldn't have even got a ticket!?!?!?!? Unless I'm misunderstanding something, this is wrong on so many levels. Apparently people can hit teenagers with trucks and its "ok" in the eyes of the law ?
How did he announce he was ran over? A facebook post. No joke. "I just got ran over by a truck, apparently stop-signs don't mean anything to people around here, haha."
