    Cyclist Injury 2

    Student at FIU, employed at UPS, appx. 11 pm on 04142012.

    The street tracks seem to be deeper and wider than other ones I’ve come across. I biked to art walk on 4-14 from the metro, this happened on the way back. I was 100% sober, like I know that to cross tracks especially on a road bike. you have to take it perpendicularly. but there was traffic. so i tried to turn and take it at an angle I thought would work. Entire wrist broken. It was a compound fracture on the outer part of the wrist with the bone sticking out. On the other side the bone was shattered. Over $50,000 of treatment.
