I was directly across the street from my neighborhood last night, around 10:30, coming back from a long ride. Crossing the street, a lady makes a U-turn; I had thought she was turning left so I turned out of the way, unbeknown st to me she was making a U-turn and ended up clipping my rear wheel. I was still grounded so I was trying to pedal away from it but I ended up losing the bike and falling about 6 feet in front of the car. I rolled over and stood up immediately and looked her dead in her eyes as she was still dragging my bike at this point I tried to grab my bike while she was still in motion and managed to pull it out from underneath. She never stopped!!! My rear wheel taco'd, so when I picked it up I proceeded to the middle of the road to avoid traffic and looked back and she was gone. I proceeded to push the bike home and because of the rear wheel not turning my tired wore down and popped the tube.
Luckily, I walked away form the accident w/ less than a minor scrape on my elbow. The sucky part ..... I just put new wheels on the bike yesterday. They weren't anything special but the idea of spending the money that I did, only to have to spend remotely as much for replacement today really put me in reverse.
