two of my friends,
collier schoffield and sergey motorny,
and members of the des moines cycling community,
were struck around 630 a.m. this morning,
while on a training ride near grimes,
just north and west of des moines.
first reports from friends at iowa methodist hospital
indicate that collier has suffered
"a fractured back and neck, broken pelvis, hip and arm,
and has blood on his brain.
sergey is a little better but still critical."
. . . . .
please keep collier and sergey in your thoughts,
please be careful out there.
