Last year, Paralympic cyclist Simon Richardson was hit by a drunk driver: http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/rider-down-1
To make matters worse the driver's insurers are refusing to pay for the operation: http://road.cc/content/news/67241-insurers-driver-who-badly-injured-paralympic-cycling-champion-simon-richardson
Anyway cutting a long story short, he's going in for surgery next week after which he may or may not walk again. His twitter feed has been pretty tough to read: https://twitter.com/CyclingSimonMBE
So if you have a moment perhaps it's worth sending him a bit of support.
