Last night a young unidentified motorcyclist, who was reportedly drunk, crashed into the window at Island Supermarket. High speed, alcohol, the speed bump on Coconut drive and some very poor judgement proved a nasty combination for this rider. As one can imagine, he suffered numerous cuts. If there is any bright spot here, he did crash into the counter where they keep the band-aids and peroxide.... PLEASE SLOW DOWN AND DON'T DRIVE DRUNK!!!!
If he was heading North at a clip and hit the largest speed bump in San Pedro I imagine he hit the window before the ground - that or Evil Kneivel lives and rides in San Pedro, trying to jump four golf carts, a mexican tricycle and a moving taxi with expected result.
I read this post twice. The reread was in s l o w m o t i o n. This brings back a memory from many many years ago. After a late night at Barefoot Iguana I was standing on the back bumper of a golf cart, all the seats were filled with drunken friends. The driver whizzing down Coconut Drive (before cobblestones) rounding the corner at Tropic Air and Cafe Ole, losing my grip, the only the only thing keeping me from being flung panties up into the road was my diamond ring hanging up in a mesh bag hanging from the cart top. Ahhhh, those memories of near adulthood.
That speed bump at the Roadkill bar is a real happening spot it would seem. We watched a drunk driver bounce his equally drunk passenger from the golf cart and the drunk driver of the cart behind them ran the guy over!
