Pro Triathelete Jordan Rapp Injured in Bike--Auto Collision

Professional triathlete Jordan Rapp was struck by a car while riding his bicycle on March 23, 2010. He was taken to St. Johns Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, California with reported injuries including numerous broken bones including his clavicle and scapula, as well as contusions and lacerations about the head and neck. He reportedly lost between two and three liters of blood as a result of the accident and was in the ICU.

The accident occurred at roughly 5:40pm on Tuesday, the 23rd of March. California Highway Patrol officer Frank Paramo said the accident is "consistent with a left hand turn" made in front of an oncoming cyclist.  Officer Paramo suspects a commuting "farm worker" made a left-hand turn into oncoming traffic. The accident occurred at the intersection of Lewis Road and Old Lewis Road in the Los Angeles County area of Oxnard.

Here's another reason to increase your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage limits.  You can't control who's going to hit you, but you can control how much coverage you have under your own auto policy!
