If you're going to ride at night, always use front and rear lights. OH, and a helmet...duh. Hope this young man recovers well.

I don't think a helmet would have helped in this case & the distracted driver would have probably hit him even with a light on the bike. Maybe a little commom sense from the bicyclist to stay away from the center lines of the road. Especially at night.

Also, Just saying No hes not stupid Its a short freaking trip so all of you saying hes stupid hes not. He doesnt own a helmet, hes 18 years old. Even if he was wearing a helmet it wouldnt have done anything. He currently sits in the hospital 6 metal plates in his skull, a black eye, fractured wrist. Hes finally responding after coming out of shock and his Medically Endused Coma. Seriously. Dont call somebody stupid if you dont know them. They dont tell the whole story. Thats only part of it. So before you call somebody stupid, Think about who just might read it. -Kiersten, York Springs PA.

I like alot of the people on here are quick to judge and blame the cyclist. Read this paragraph again.

The Ford's driver, Michael Sandoe, 52, Gardners, told police he was talking to his 17-year-old female passenger when she told him that he was drifting into the other lane. He looked up and saw something in front of his vehicle, but was unable to react in time.

Yes, clearly he's an illegal since he was riding a bike. The name Keith is a clear give away that he's an illegal.

I'm so tired of you Franklin county morons jumping to conclusions and always so quick to judge people. I'm sure most of you are such high class people yourselves.(SARCASM)

Anyway my thoughts go out the cyclist, hope he has a speedy recovery.

Kiersten, girl you are my hero finally someone is standing up for keith against these jerks! He is such an amazing and caring person, none of these news stories even tried to get to know him before they wrote their dumb stories. Keith deserves so much better than this!

GET WELL SOON KEITH

AS FOR THE REST OF YOU JERKS WHO ARE JUDGING KEITH.... SHOVE IT WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE!!!!!!

Sorry about your friend, but there's no excuse for "lack of common sense". In life, you must assume risk but you don't have to tempt fate.
