Description:

Was riding West on King, approaching Niagara (right in front of the Foggy Dew). The door opened on my right side. I managed to avoid it, but only used my front break as my rear brake has been stuck by winter. I ride it fixie.

I fell on my arms, with my chin eventually scrapping the road a bit.

The driver was really nice, almost more shocked than myself. She let me rest in her car and gave me her phone number, but unfortunately my phone didn't save it. Name was Sabrina, blond hair, in her thirties. Looking to reach out to her.

On the moment my left arm was hurting, but nothing was apparent. I went home on my bike, breaking only through the pedals.

I have the left radial head broken: 2 weeks of cast.
