Dashcam Captures Post-Accident Bike Theft
What’s worse than being hit by a car on the way to your girlfriend’s house? Having your bike stolen while being tended to by paramedics has to be on the list. From Kansas City based ABC affiliate KMBC:
Witnesses told her she had struck a bicyclist. As Hardy laid in the street, his bike was taken to the side of the street. He said he tried to keep an eye on it while the firefighters and paramedics.
That’s when thieves nonchalantly tested the bike to ensure it worked and then took off with it. These were the same men who had checked on Hardy immediately after the crash.
Soma Fabrications heard the news and offered to send the injured Mike Hardy a replacement frameset, which he accepted only after a month of the bike still being missing. See the dashcam video at the KMBC news report.
