Rider down

59 HOV southbound at the Kelley exit. i can't say much due to HIPAA...but it was really bad. Wear your gear and do not change your mind about exiting or not at the last minute...just keep going and turn around later.

He is a long way from ok but he will survive. He apparently decided to go the other way at a split and hit the divider with the left side of his cruiser, the forks and front wheel were about 50 feet from him, and the rest af the bike was another 50 feet away. We had to come back later after they picked up the bike to wash down the pieces of him.

Gear would not have saved him, but would have reduced secondary injuries. I doubt he will evr be able to ride again.
