Title: Greetings everyone

Hey everyone,

Just found this site and have already found some great info. Thanks for that. :-)
I am currently in PT for a shattered left patella. Some schmuck in a Ford Explorer pulled
out in front of me on the highway at the last second and I T-Boned him on my sport
bike at about 60 mph(errr... I think that's about 100kph give or take). I think my knee
 hit the side of his truck as I went over the hood.  Of course he had no insurance.
Had my surgery on 3/21 to remove the top portion as it was beyond repair and now
 my goal is to be playing hockey again by September. Just thought I would say hi
since I'm new here. I feel for all of you with knee injuries (it sucks) and I hope you
all get well soon.

Ryan, I too ended up here due to a drunk driver 76 years old who had spent all day in the bar, and then came at me head on in my lane while leaning down to get another drink, with no lights on after dark. I had just pulled out about 3 blocks away, and some hime when my lights hit his bumper. THE car behind me said, I pulled, out, hit the lights and then she heard the crash, as she could not see him since he had no lights on . HAD minimal insurance not even enought for the $300000 plus so far, and of course,owned nothing. BEEN a miserable three years , that is for sure, and I hope you heal faster and better. Teresa
