David, you weren't there and have no idea what you are talking about! The driver of the SUV pulled out safely, didn't expect a guy to pass another driver in the bike lane at twice his speed. Don't blame someone, when you weren't there and didn't see anything!

Thank you for every thoughtful and kind individual that assisted me in Oak Park this past Tuesday. For anyone that stopped to comfort, collect my animals or witness in any way. To the apt first responders, Sherrif's Department members, Firemen, Paramedics, air transport personnel and fine doctors and staff at UCLA Medical Center, may God bless and keep you in safety always. To my family and friends, Thank you, with all of my love. To those bystanders and merchants that selflessly chose to stand in the gap, I will attempt contact and to thank you personally, as soon as I am able. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and best to all of you this holiday season. You are all really something! God Bless, Philip Maurice Hayes.

First, and foremost, very happy to see your are on the mend Philp. Very sorry for what you went through. Schumi, I do in fact have a full understanding of the scenario. I was there. I drive a sportscar and an SUV, drive down that road at least twice a day, go to Agoura Deli on occasion and the Farmers' Market on Sundays. I also ride my bicycle in that very bike lane several times a week. I have a full understanding thank you very much. The whole premise of "defensive driving" is to expect the unexpected. If I didn't do so, I'd have hit a number of cars exiting that very driveway many times or have been hit on my bicycle by people who MISJUDGE MY SPEED as I approach. Not saying that its Philip's fault. Its primarily the fault of the Nissan driver. Just saying Philip MAY have been slightly distracted. At the time he exited that driveway it was pretty much when things get extra busy with traffic. ANYONE might have been hit but a few extra seconds to double and triple check before pulling out may have made the difference. Not interested in a debate here and perhaps my first comment was a bit of a "soapbox". What I am most interested in is people driving more safely. A number of my friends have been killed by reckless or inattentive drivers. I don't want the next one to be me or a loved one.

Brian Birdsall of Oak Park was drunk, driving at 80 mph+, blew 2 red lights and passed cars in the bike lane before he slammed in the SUV. I could only imagine what carnage he would have caused if he managed to reach T/O Blvd.
