Michael Milton in hospital after bike crash

By johnboy - 6 October 2010 23

The Canberra Times informs us that one of the most revered Canberrans, Michael Milton is recovering in hospital after running his bicycle into a garbage truck.

Canberra Paralympian Michael Milton is recovering in hospital with spinal, shoulder and rib fractures after a cycling accident in Dickson last week.

The five-time Paralympian lost control of his bike along Cowper Street and collided with a garbage truck last Friday.

Milton spent the long weekend in Canberra Hospital in a stable condition, but had no memory of what had caused the accident.

Here’s hoping he’s back on his foot soon.

What’s Your opinion?

He got the death wobbles after his missing foot slipped out of the peddals

Apparently I don’t until after I’ve posted. Oh well, at least it’s given you all someone to laugh at for the day.

Um, I may be wrong, but I think that was just a joke. Garbage truck…rubbish…get it?

I giggled about it until I saw the other comments.

Many people’s experience is to the contrary. Don’t suddenly become a good bloke because you’re without a leg

Why bring this up when he has had an accident? Is it really relevant?

I wonder if you can get 3rd Party Property insurance for a treddly.

You can get public liability insurance with Pedal Power, covers you if you cause an accident.

I make no judgment as to whether reverence is warranted.

That’s rubbish!

Why exactly HC?

I vividly recall remembering nothing of a bike stack I had as a teenager. From the first wobble to being sprawled on the road after, busted and broken – nothing in between. It happens. Big bangs and electrical surges in the brain I put it down to.

Really? What did he say to you?

(or is this a bad garbage truck joke I only just got?)
