Description:

I was doored while cycling slowly eastbound on Dundas at Manning. The edge of the minivan door hit my forearm and tore into my right ear, just under my helmet. I was knocked over, into the street. Pedestrian passers-by stopped to help. An ambulance was called. Plastic surgery in Toronto Western ER resulted in 17 stitches. A statement was made to Toronto police, but I have heard nothing back yet.
