I just read that Janet and Carol had an accident today. I am so sorry to hear that anybody ever gets hurt. My prayers are of you and your family and all of us each time we go out on the road. We do a similar ride down south called Mountain to the Sea trail, one of my favorites. . I hope Janet will be home soon and on her way to healing and that Carol will be okay  So thankful they had quick medical attention. 
Be safe everyone, Trish

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.
