My friend hit by a truck

My friend who is a disabled Veteran was hit by a truck while training for his first Ragbrai 2021. Miraculously he didnt suffer life threatening injuries, he is pretty banged up and doctors say won’t suffer any long lasting injuries. But unfortunately his bike perished in the accident. For some reason the police decided he was at fault for the accident and even gave him a citation. The insurance company is not going to reimburse him for his damages or medical bills. If it is allowed I would like to post a link to his GoFundMe page to help him replaced his bike and medical bills.

Yes please do! Would it be OK if we also shared on our social media?

As a Life Member of the League of American Wheelman and a strong advocate of cyclists’ rights, I would be interested in knowing just what your friend was cited for, and what factor it may have played in the accident.
