A little hesitant to post this...
Apparently a few weeks ago a person was riding his/her bicycle Westbound on Whoop-Up Drive into Eastbound traffic when an oncoming Eastbound XXXXXX Taxi struck the cyclist and sent him/her to the Chinook Regional Hospital where he/she was soon airlifted to Calgary in critical condition.
I have heard that this person "lost both of their legs". Exactly what that means I am unsure but it can not be good.
There is a paved walking path directly adjacent to the main thoroughfare and to decide to ride your bike into oncoming 90km per hour traffic is just crazy. Perhaps signage is lacking to direct pedestrian traffic to the path but who knows, it is not for me to speculate.
I see people on this crossing all the time, either walking, skateboarding, or cycling down this huge hill, I suppose it was just a matter of time until someone was seriously injured. I guess he/she should be happy to be alive but still a tragic, life altering experience.
USE THE PAVED WALKING PATH!
