Ryan Lipscomb was biking home from school when a delivery truck turned in front of him. Ryan slammed on his brakes, fell off his bike and slid underneath the wheel of the truck, which then drove over his head.
Ryan is fine.
"I didn't see it coming, but I sure felt it roll over my head. It feels really strange to have a truck run over your head."
Yeah...ok...I'll take his word for it. Obviously there's a lot of luck here, but also some good technology. Though his helmet was crushed, it managed to protect him enough to keep his brains on the inside of his head. While he's got all kinds of scrapes and a concussion, he is not dead and that makes me want to write a nice letter to the folks that make bike helmets.
