Biker Down

Jason Lummis was run down by a hit-and-run driver while riding his bike down Dexter-Pinckney Road on Wednesday night.

As a member of the Bell’s Brewery Quiring Cycling Team, Jason was riding home from work at Great Lakes Cycling and Fitness, when police say, he was hit from behind at the intersection of Fleming Road and Horseshoe Bend.

The impact of the crash tossed Jason and his bike into a drainage ditch, and the driver just kept going.

“He really thought he was going to die in that ditch, and he had to crawl to find his backpack and dial 911,” said Kathy Lummis, Jason’s wife.

Doctors at the University of Michigan say Jason suffered multiple fractures to his back and pelvis as well as a deep puncture wound.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Dude, I know Jason, He is the man. This guy is the epitome of tough. Commutes 40 miles on Michigan’s dirt roads every day. Rain, Snow, Shine. 365 days a year. He doesn’t train, he just rides everywhere and man, he’s a beast. From what i’ve gathered, he lost alot of blood and fucked up his back but looks like he’s going to pull through. He drinks beer, is a family man, and rides hard. He’s one of us. Send him good vibes. This shit is getting ridiculous.

  2. Yeah, it is getting ridiculous.

    Starting to feel like a war, and we’re not winning.
