Bicyclist Paul Tetu, , posted the following on Patch Wednesday:
Though I cannot remember the collision along with a lot else in recent memory, I do believe I was traveling west on Foothill and making a left onto Violet. I live in the apartments on the corner there. I didn't recognize Violet as the street I live off of until today. It's been a very difficult time.
From the most sincere place in my heart, thank you so much to the men and women who worked to save me. We owe a lot to the people not-so-behind-the-scenes and too often we ramble on without acknowledging the incredible effort they give to make our world a safer, better place and often while cracking jokes about them. My deepest thanks to them, my friends and, most of all, my family for supporting me as I recover. I promise I will not take this second chance lightly.
