My brother

We came home for the weekend, and while we were home my brother got into a motorcycle accident. Luckily, he is all right, but he got banged up pretty good. They took him to "surgery", but it sounds like they just sedated him so they could scrub all the road rash and stitch him up. He got 30 stitches and he cant open his eye. From what I heard, he was riding with the neighbor and a friend of the family, and a truck pulling a camper pulled out from a side street. The guy in the truck didnt see another guy on a bicycle on the side of the road and slammed on his brakes. One of the motorcycles stopped, the other one started to loose controll then regained control and stopped, Alex's breaks locked up and Alex went flying one way and his bike flew into one of the other motorcycles. Alex's head bounced off the cement and they took him by ambulance to the hospital where they cleaned him up and kept him over night for observation.
According to Mom, he's ok, but he's pretty shaken up over it.
Im just thankful he is alive, and if he ever gets on a bike again, he will re-think the helmit idea.
