TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY RALLIES AROUND LADY CYCLIST SERIOUSLY INJURED ON DANGEROUS STREETCAR TRAX!!! CRITICS DEMAND TOY TRAIN EXPANSION PLAN FULL STOP AMID PUBLIC SAFETY THREAT!!!
Right now our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY is FIRST to report this CRITICAL consequence of unbridled Downtown Streetcar development which has caused SERIOUS INJURY to a woman who is now HURT BADLY and relying on support from her friends.
To wit . . .
DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY TOY TRAN STREETCAR TRAX HAVE CRITICALLY INJURED A LADY CYCLIST AND HER AMAZING FRIENDS ARE HOPING TO CROWDFUND HER MEDICAL BILLS!!!
And whilst we all may endlessly disagree about transit . . . There's no denying that Kansas City is showing a lot of love for this lady.
Take a look:
Last week on First Friday, OUR FRIEND was enjoying a ride in the Crossroads when her bike tire got stuck inside the new street car track. She was thrown off her bike causing serious injury, including a gash on her head and a shattered left arm.
She went to the hospital that night and received stitches in her head and a referral to a surgeons office. After five painful days of waiting she finally had a successful surgery. Metal plates and pins were used to piece her arm back together.
Now she will need to heal and undergo physical therapy to regain movement in her arm ... This will take time. As you know, she's a barista and will not be able to work until her arm is healed.
With all of these large bills piling up and her unable to work her main job, she will need any help she can get. Let's help out our gal pal whose smile & giggle can melt even the iciest of hearts.
This "goal" is just a conservative guess of what she will owe for her bills...she may need more.
Help spread the word!
And now here's where the plot thickens . . .
CRITICS OF THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR NOTE THIS INCIDENT AS A DEFINING MOMENT HIGHLIGHTING THE DANGERS OF THE TOY TRAIN AND DEMAND A FULL STOP OF EXPANSION PLANS UNTIL FURTHER STUDY OF PUBLIC RISK IS COMPLETE!!!
Here's the word . .
"It is time for the citizens of KCMO to take a stand. Do we want to continue having a tourist attraction for free loaders OR safe streets for our residents?"
Don't get it twisted, these folks are friends with this lady as well and they are part of the effort to help her back to good health...
"Our friend has been a loyal, amazing employee for over a decade. She recently was injured when her bike got caught in the new streetcar tracks and she was thrown to the ground shattering her left arm. She'll be unable to work her 2 jobs for a little while and we are trying to support her recovery with this fund. Please share and donate if you can . . ."
And now, here's where our blog community can put its money where its mouth is and act on the info we've provided . . .
