David Longdon was injured doing what he loves – biking – when a minivan forced him off of Highway 202 and into a ditch.
“I’m broken up and I can’t sleep. And the pain is pretty severe right now,” he said.
Longdon was riding with the Starbucks Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Racing Team when he and others saw a red minivan speeding and driving erratically. The van crossed the median to pass several cars, forcing oncoming Longdon into a ditch, witnesses told state troopers.
The cyclist slammed into a concrete culvert, cracked his helmet, and broke his arm, ribs, and collar bone. The mini van kept on going.
