Janet and Carol, I am so sorry to hear about this.
We all ride sometimes, wondering if something could happen to us too.
If Keith wants to set up a donation site to help fix your bikes (or injuries), I know we are all willing to contribute.
Count me in, even if it is just for flowers!
As a side note, I used to work in, I think about 75 or more hospitals as a clinical engineer.
Strangely, I often saw nurses clap when someone was getting into a cab or car to leave the hospital.
I always thought they really didn't need to do that, until I saw a well-dressed woman alone, leaving an ER whimpering.
I can still picture it.
Now I realize why nurses and staff do this. I will clap when you two leave.

Teri and all,
Janet is resting but will the next few days will be painful.
If anyone that was on that ill fated ride has any of Janet's OR Carol's belongings can you please let me know. I understand that Carol is in search of her wallet and Janet is missing her Rudy Project Rx sunglasses and helmet. (We will be getting her a new helmet but the mirror may still be okay.

We had a tough day today with two of our gals crashing.   Janet and Carol both crashed on Bonita Canyon Dr  just before reaching Mac Arthur in Irvine.  The two may have touched wheels and went down hard.  Both were taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana via ambulance.   Carol was released but Janet will be spending the night for observation.  I do not have any further information regarding Carol's condition.  I am assuming that they fully checked her out since they released her.   Per Keith, Janet has a cracked rib and sternum and a partially collapsed lung.  After returning  to my vehicle I went to the hospital and was able to visit her for a short while.   Our gal is pretty banged up.  I'm sure Keith will give us an update in the next day or so.   Please keep them all in prayer. 
They were both so lucky, it could have been worse since they were both in a traffic lane.  There was a motorist that was behind them, he/she stopped and blocked traffic and the most amazing thing of all, there was a doctor close by who stopped and helped until the Paramedics arrived.  All of the 1st responders were great.  They were there in no time.  Seemed like only 5 minutes.   Some of the guys were keeping traffic abay until the police arrived.  Thanks guys.
Thank you to Sylvia for staying w/me, Janet & Carol's bikes and to Nancy & Mike B. for coming back with their cars and getting us back to our vehicles in Anaheim. 
Ride Safe,
Teri M.
