How sad, My son saw that bike rider pushing his bike near 7-11 store last night about 23:25. It looked like he had a flat tire.

This gives me chills! Last night my parents left the Giants game early & later told me when they had gotten home they noticed a man walking his bike. My mom felt bad becuase it was late and it looked like he had a flat tire. They later went to pick me up from bart and said the street was blocked because there was a really bad accident. When i was leaving there house to mine a San Ramon cop stopped me and questioned me. it didnt acure to me that it may have been the guy my parents saw! God I hope they find that guy who hit him!
