I was riding between my house, where I had to go to prepare the house for a showing and Riverside Presbyterian Church where I was to meet with others on the landscape design committee.
I was right in front of St. VIncent's Hospital when a car came to a stop right in front of me. I saw it right away and easily slowed to a stop behind it. I was looking in front of the car to see why it was stopped when I was hit from behind. The hit forced me into the car in front and I went down on my right side. I hit my helmet on the pavement lightly and jumped up feeling OK.
Rocket has damage at the rear end, broken light, broken license plate holder, etc., and a small dent on the front. The windshield is broken and the steering got skewed slightly.
I got a small scrape on my elbow.
I am quite sure that insurance would total Rocket as it is old and worn, but we won't be going that route. I am certain that Boris can get it repaired and back on the road easily.
A police officer stopped briefly to check on us. He said I should buy lottery tickets as I am lucky to be unharmed.

No License plate and broken tail light
