What the fuck



Cyclist and bike shop owner training for triathlon hit by car. Car stops, driver gets out, yells at her, runs over her again. She's was in a coma for nearly a month and has only started speaking yesterday, and speaks briefly like a stoned three-year-old. The DA refuses to press charges against the driver and apparently, that's just that.


"Last month, a dear friend of mine named Jan Morgan was hit while riding her bicycle training for an Ironman. It was a straight road (no turns or hills) and the sun could not have been in the driver's eyes. The car hit them from behind at full speed. At first glance you might think this was an accident. BUT Robbie Norton, the woman who hit Jan, got out of the car, looked at Jan, yelled at her for cycling in the road, got back in her car and ran Jan over again. There were multiple witnesses who stopped Robbie Norton by dragging her out of the car.

Reddit, the problem is, we've just learned they do not intend on pressing charges. Reason? The District Attorney, Forrest Allgood, says there are no laws in Mississippi to protect cyclists from this."


Infuriating. Unbelievable.
