On my way in to work...I was zipping down through town on a two lane section of a road which is intersected by single and double laned roads. From what I can gather (it's still pretty hazy) I was doing around 20mph, in primary in the inside lane, coming up to some lights where a two lane (each way) road intersects the one I was on. The lights changed to orange and due to my speed and the fact that I was almost there I carried on through. I remember seeing a silver car turn accross me from the right and then it's all a blank until I'm sitting (I assume in the middle of the road) with my head in my hands listening to someone telling the 999 operator of my condition. The ambulance and police arrived in what seemed like seconds but I've no idea how long it was, and I got into the ambulance to get get checked out. I was pretty shaken up but wasn't in any serious pain...just massively spaced out! The policeman locked up my bike, gave me all my bits (pump, computer, pannier etc) and called work for me whilst the ambulance crew were checking me out. I was then taken to the hospital where I had more checks done and had my ear glued up before being sent home with my dad who has to keep an eye on me due to it being a head injury. Seems I came off reasonably well considering. I have a cauliflower ear which is pretty cut and bruised, a bit of road rash on the shoulder, a sore finger and a killer headache My helmet took the brunt of it and cracked. Must have been a pretty spectacular crash as I have no injuries from the waist down and it appears I landed on my head! The driver stopped and was apparently pretty shaken up. I think a fair few people stopped, I definitely recall seeing another cyclist looking down at me, and a big thanks to whoever called 999 and the ambulance crew who were great. Yesterday I felt like I'd gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson but today I'm a lot more with it. The bike seems to have come off remarkably well considering I didn't have time to brake and from the last I remember must have gone straight into the side of the car. I've only had a quick look but...the front wheel is slightly out of true and the rear mudguard is broken but the rest appears fine. Surly live up to their name! Still not sure exactly where the driver came from. I guess they had been waiting to turn right from the other side of the road I was on and didn't see me, rather than having jumped the reds on the intersecting road but who knows? Anyone know where I stand or what, if anything, I should do next? I've never been in an accident with someone else before! I don't red light jump but it was pretty reckless to squeeze through on the orange, am I at fault as a result? I rarely do it but I was really chilly and travelling pretty fast.
