Ben Badagliacca hit by car

Just a few minutes ago while driving home from work I approached an accident on Armor Duells Rd at the Duerr intersection. I walked up and realized it was a cyclist in lycra who had been hit and was lying in the middle of the road. There were cars stopped all around and I went to get a blanket from my car. I returned an laid the blanket on the cyclist and damn if it wasn't Ben!! He seemed to have injured his back pretty badly. He couldn't move and was unable to really speak or make coherent gestures. I waited until the ambulance arrived, thankfully in just a few minutes. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Hoping Ben is OK. Really sorry to hear about his accident.
