So, my friend with the Blue BRZ that is commonly pictured next to my 2 was hit by a bus last night, while walking. He compound fractured his tibia and fibula, broke his right arm, has head trauma (no swelling, amazingly), and is still on bed rest in the Critical Care Unit. The worthless piece of shit that hit him stripped him down naked, took his ID/Phone and left him for dead in a ditch minutes from Texas A&M, at twilight. He was found hours later, and not even identified until 10AM Thursday.
Shit is serious.
He is alive, and will make a full recovery, but it's going to take months. He's my lifting partner, and on Tuesday I watched him leg press over 700 pounds. On Thursday I saw him unconscious in a hospital bed. I have had life threatening injuries myself, but never have I been worried so deeply for a close friend. The wait to find out if he was alive, or brain damaged was excruciating. He was taken off ventilator today and is breathing on his own, I spoke with him for the first time in two days (typically I see him daily) over lunch today, words can not describe how happy it makes me.
The police have located a damaged bus that would match the scenario he was injured in, I hope that fucker gets his day in court, so badly. It makes me livid that somebody could do such a thing and then have the gall to drive off. Icing on the cake is that it is supposedly one of the campus transit buses. I will post updates as more information becomes clear in the investigation.
