Paragliding at Pacifica

paraglider

This was me ridge soaring at the coast years ago when I was very daring, and didn’t bruise so easily. I’ve also done thermals, but have retired my wing and plan to stay on the ground from now on after being convinced earlier this year at Ed Levin that it might be too much fun to live with.

Scooter Accident – Lincoln/Lincoln

7:25 PM – Screech of tires; sound of impact:

Apparently, a young girl was driving the scooter with a passenger (her father?) and twisted the throttle too fast. Her passenger fell off and she lost control of the scooter. Then she ran into a car that was pulling out of the side street, perhaps too quickly.

The impact sent her flying and her helmet came off in the air.

7:31 – Fire engine paramedics arrive.
7:34 – Police and ambulance arrive.

There was a very small amount of blood on the street, perhaps from a cut on the side of her head. She was conscious the entire time on the street, and in some pain.
