I just found out that Stana went through surgery today for a compound fracture on her left leg. She is in a lot of pain but should be released from BAMC on Tuesday. Phyl is waiting to get a permanent cast on her ankle and has stitches on her left elbow. They were T-boned by another rider that crossed the center stripe on a curve at the top of one of the hills. The other rider suffered multiple broken ribs and other injuries. He was AirLifted to University Hospital in San Antonio. I don't know his status.

Sounds like they will be alright. GOOD! Your story was brief, but sounds like a squid was going too fast and buzzed over the line into other bikes. I'd hate to see anyone seriously hurt, and I hope the squid learns a lesson.

yes sir, it happened about 1/2 mile after the rest area that we always stop at on top of the hill before you get into Leakey. They were with our group but had gotten separated just before the rest area and they didn't see that we had stopped.

Prayer and best wishes to them Dave:pray:. It was a reality check to see bodies thrown along the road, definitely had my throttle back.

Ride on.....SAFELY.

This is the latest update as of 11:45 on Monday.
Stana had surgery on her left leg. It was a compound fracture about 3" above the ankle. They put in a Titanium rod and 4 screws. She is still in a lot of pain so they are bringing in a pain specialist because the Morphine is not working. It may be Wednesday before she is released.
Phyl also had 2 broken bones on the top of her left foot right above the 3 middle toes. She was released Saturday night from Uvalde hospital.

More updates to come.

Dave, thanks for keeping us all updated. My heart goes out to the girls. And really hope the idiot that hit them is ok too.

Latest update on Stana.
She was released from the hospital on Wednesday. Her daughter flew into San Antonio to take her and Phyl back home to Houston.
They told me to thank everyone for the Thoughts and Get Well Cards.

Was this a different wreck than the one I saw that had the yellow body bag, with occupant? I talked to SwatCop-Dave- about that one on Saturday, and we both knew that guy was dead. Sounds like no one really knows about how this guy turned out. Prayers out for a full and complete recovery for the women.

somebody should check with txmotofoto. the white f150 that was sitting there was taking pictures in that corner im pretty sure. the guy that hit them may have been posing for the camera and swung wide???? just a thought. after looking at lots of their pics online, lots of people let go of the handle bars to show off for the camera. :dontknow:

That must have been a different wreck, no one was killed in this one. Just a few broken bones but no body bag. The one that was laying by the guard rail was Stana, she was the one with the broken leg.

Maybe they were using the yellow tarp(?) to keep her out of the sun while waiting for EMS. I hope so. There sure a disfigured limb sticking out of the tarp, though.

Sorry so late with reply here. Yes, Dave, thanks for the update. Eventhough it was bad enough, thank God it wasn't any worse than what it was. Thoughts and prayers for a rapid recovery from Karen and me.
