Our good friend Mike Vincent has an interview up on FatBMX.com about the trials and tribulations of trying to regain his vision. To give you guys a quick refresher, here’s an excerpt:
For those who don’t know you or who haven’t heard about your accident, can you fill them in real quick what happened so they’re up to speed for the rest of the interview? Well, just over 2 1/2 years ago my life was turned upside down. As many of you know, I was hit by a car while riding my bike in Los Angeles. I was in the bike lane and the girl that hit me actually drove into the bike lane. She threw me 30 feet. I was hospitalized for 6 months, then went for out-patient therapy for another 4 months. Two months after the accident, I completely lost my vision in both eyes. I had four brain surgeries, lung surgery, a trach, a feeding tube, numerous broken bones and two eye surgeries. I racked up over $3.5M in medical expenses in California alone. The girl that hit me had $100K insurance, which the State of CA had a lien on. So, my life was stripped from me and she didn’t get cited and only had to experience higher insurance premiums.
