Description:

Riding down bloor 1 block past Douvercourt and a woman opened her door as I was about half a second away. I slammed on my breaks to avoid collision with the door and went over my handlebars and landed on my left side. Bumping into the stopped car. I was unable to get up on my own as I could not put weight on my left leg. Driver stayed but was rude, denied fault, and was annoyed. I called 911 and went to emerge. Still waiting for police so I can file an incident report.
