I received a phone call from Jess’ boss today to say that she had been involved in an accident. Someone pulled out of a junction without looking and Jess took a tumble taking avoiding action. She has a broken collar bone and various other bumps and scrapes as a result but is otherwise OK.
I’m not too sure about the condition of her beloved bike but it has been sent to Seastar to assess the damage.
Fortunately, the other party has admitted liability, so the insurance claim should be pretty straightforward.
Unfortunately, poor Jess has to wait at least six weeks for her collar bone to heal. She has had preliminary x-rays but has to go back again in two weeks for another assessment.
