    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

Bicycle Accident on South Boulder Road

Mar 1, 2006
Westminster, Co
A 63 year-old Louisville man sustained serious head injuries early Tuesday morning when he lost control of his bicycle in the 7700 block of South Boulder Road, west of Louisville, and plunged head over heels, landing on his head. The impact split his bicycle helmet in two.

Witnesses reported that the victim, whose name has not been released due to the severity of his injuries, was bicycling westbound on South Boulder Road when he lost control and crashed. There were no other vehicles involved. The accident occurred at approximately 7:50 a.m.

A passerby, Mr. Dominic Crenshaw, who, by good fortune, had training as an Emergency Medical Technician, stopped to render assistance until authorities arrived. Emergency services at the scene were provided by the Louisville Fire Department, Rocky Mountain Fire Authority, Louisville Police Department, Pridemark Paramedic Services, and Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. The victim was initially transported to Avista Hospital in Louisville by ambulance and was thereafter airlifted to St. Anthony’s Central Hospital in Denver by a “Flight for Life” helicopter.

The extent of the victim’s head injuries are not known, but are considered serious. Sheriff’s deputy Mark George, who investigated the accident, said that the man would have likely been killed if he had not been wearing a helmet.
