Re: Pennybacker Bridge on Loop 360: Bicyclist injured

My boyfriend was out on a ride Saturday morning and saw the road closed down after the accident.  He couldn't really tell what was going on, except that it looked bad.  He checked the Texas Bicycle Racing Association website when he got home and found that the cyclist was Anthony Kaim, and according to second-hand information he lost control of his bike, hit the railing, and ricocheted into traffic.  He was subsequently hit and run over, suffering some serious injuries.  Miraculously, his head scans are normal.  He does have a broken hip, among other injuries.
