Asha Whittle’s story could have been tragic.
Judging from the nature of the collision (she and her bike were dragged across the intersection), photos taken at the scene, and comments from police and other first responders, when I first reported about her crash earlier this month, I expected that she had sustained major injuries.
Fortunately, she suffered only minor injuries. She left a comment a day after the crash saying she was “miraculously fine” and is now out of the hospital and trying to get back to life as usual.
In the comments to the original story, several readers wondered if they could help Asha get rolling again. Now, Asha says she could indeed use some help.
As luck would have it, the man who drove his car into Asha did not have insurance. She figures the collision will end up costing her several thousand dollars. And her bike, well, it’s not exactly road worthy any more…
