Trevor is fine.

His bike... not so much.

You can kind of see where the car wheel drove over the frame here.

The handlebars used to be the same...

This is with the top & bottom frame lined up - and the whole back is off-kilter.

And this is the 'new-to-Trevor' bike we got as a replacement, the same day.

Trevor was riding uphill at pedestrian-speed, according to witnesses, and a car pulled out in front of him, intent on the fast traffic as he tried to merge.

It was a slower accident, as accidents go - Trev said he wasn't scared, and he had the presence of mind to pull his legs out from under the car, using the fender, so he didn't really suffer any injuries as far as we know at this time.

The police were called, paramedics came & checked him out, and Lee was called at work because Trevor was hoping for a ride. He completely forgot that his dad walks to work. Then Trevor decided he'd just walk the rest of the way to the doctor appointment he was going to, and then he walked home afterward.

Then he got his new bike. Which I expect we'll submit to the guy's insurance for reimbursement. It wasn't way expensive, but the old bike would have lasted a few more years, at least. Oh well. Maybe we can use the tires & tubes for Diana's bike (she has a flat right now). They both got them the same year. I think it was '98?

Well, I am thankful that Trevor is ok! Sometimes we pray for people without really thinking about how the prayers will end up helping that person. We prayed as we usually do for the health and well being of "Tante Tina and her family" and "Tante Connie and her family" and of course many others but we don't always see the outcome of our prayers. I am thinking even in the overall type of prayer, we've got your back, Trev! The same for the rest of the family! yay!

Yep, same goes for you guys from us :) I told Trevor to say thank you to all the angels and everyone that was watching over him. :)

We also are relieved/rejoicing to know Trevor is unharmed!! (and also remember your family in our prayers :-)

years ago in a Bible Study class the leader taught an acronym for LUCK:
Living Under Christ's Kindness.

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
James 1:17

So glad to hear Trevor's doing well (all things considered). Donna told us about it when we were at Grandma's to bring her some pie for her birthday. Everyone continues to send our prayers and love.

Jim V could probably fix that bike. ;)
