Just got off the phone with Pete.
He was wearing all the gear, (pants and jacket), no road rash at all. He has 4 cracked ribs and a small puncture on his lung.
A car backed out in front of him, he swerved to try and avoid hitting it head on, but his saddle bag hit the car and flipped him.
He woke up to someone telling him to breathe, remembers an ambulance, but not much else.
He got out of the hospital yesterday. He is very sore, all his muscles are killing him, in addition to the ribs and lung.
If the bike is totalled, (he hasn't seen it yet), he would like to grab some parts off it. I told him a couple of us can come up with tools and take whatever he needs off for him.
He is home right now, but heading to Vickie's tonight.
