Re: The Cavalier is dead- rolled again!

Today the driver of the #44 Maxima visited Tyler in the hospital and by all accounts the meeting went well. If Tyler is holding no grudges, no one else should either, let the healing process begin to a full recovery. Godspeed Tyler....

Re: The Cavalier is dead- rolled again!

Good to hear that. Tyler is home and feeling better- it's great to be out of the hospital, and even with a 'hangman's fracture' it should just be a matter of time.

Maybe time to let this thread die on its own...

Guess I'll throw in a last comment....hope the Men In Black don't go with a window net rule....they're great for keeping in your left arm and even better at trapping the driver....I've been in Tyler's situation (upside down, fire, but no broken bones fortunately) and found it hard to find the release for the net being disoriented and distracted by the fire....I scrambled out the passenger side, which was into traffic, not good. Speedy recovery Tyler!

I am for nets, a guy got killed at Sears Point about 8-10 years ago in a sedan without net during what was an otherwise low drama wreck.

Hanger on!??!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I beleive after the investigation it was determined that a window net would not have made any difference in that fatality, it was ultimately door trim metal that caused the mortal wound to the driver.  As it has been said before "descuzzify" the driver compartment, something that looks so insignificant can indeed injure you, even fatally in a crash.

Truth, I was there.  a window  net would've done nothing in that particular instance.

I'm personally of the opinion that you'll burn to death much quicker with a net.

Re: The Cavalier is dead- rolled again!

Any updates on Tyler? Hope he is doing well and on his way to a speedy recovery.

He was released from the hospital last week.  He'll be in a neck brace for three months.

Re: The Cavalier is dead- rolled again!

Let's not forget that Tyler owns a "one-man" motorcycle service shop and he will be without income for 3 months.  Insurance covered the medical expenses, but his income will be $0 for 3 months, if we all pitch in just $100 or $50 each perhaps we can all help him financially through his difficult recovery time.  My check is going out next week, here's where you can send any financial help

Re: The Cavalier is dead- rolled again!

The FOH (Friends of Hayasa) are doing their bit to make the shop go on.
For the next few months the (almost) daily wrench twiddler will be me, but there has been a great response and support from people.

I know Tyler appreciates the help, and he's appreciative but a little embarrassed by all the attention- so thanks again to everyone!

How about an update, how is Tyler doing now, is he recoverred? Any lingering problems??

Re: The Cavalier is dead- rolled again!

Doing fine, the shop's a zoo, he won't be riding dirt bikes for a few more months yet.
Pretty much a full recovery- still a little range of motion to work on, but everything works.
