Swift justice for a cyclist in PA

From The Sentinel

A Walnut Bottom bicyclist was taken to Chambersburg Hospital after he collided with a truck in Southampton Township earlier this week.

State police at Carlisle said David E. Klopp, 33, was riding his bicycle south on Baltimore Road when a 2008 Dodge 1500 passed him just before the intersection with Koser Lane.

After passing Klopp, the driver of the truck, Roger E. Chestnut, 54, of Shippensburg, made an immediate right turn onto Koser Lane, police said.

Klopp was unable to stop his bicycle as the truck turned in front of him, and the bicycle hit a trailer being towed by the truck, police said.

Klopp suffered a minor injury and was taken to Chambersburg Hospital for treatment, police said. He was wearing a hospital. [Probably meant helmet.]

Chestnut was not injured and was charged with careless driving, police said.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
