Natasha Posted September 22, 2022 Report Share Posted September 22, 2022 Putting here because it's the man, not a pet. Happily, Richie survived, but suffered TWO broken hands, at least one broken wrist, a badly fractured right arm, plus multiple contusions and abrasions requiring stitches etc. This because he was between appts., riding a "moto" (gas too expensive) on the carretera west of Ajijic, and suffered a head-on crash into a foreigner's car as she (? unsafely?) exited a gated community out that way. NOT judging at this point.... that's for authorities to decide. At least he wears a great helmet so head remained intact... inside and out...... but he'll be a LONG time recovering, with no way to feed his wife and baby daughter. His older brother tells me the lady's insurance company offered only the worst and cheapest of medical care options. I get that's what insurance companies do, but I hope they will be pressured to do the right thing in this case. I get it's the company and not the lady, but it's still despicable. Fortunately Richie has some kind of health plan that will cover part of the costs of the good hospital and excellent hand surgeon family elected to use, but there's still the deductible to pay, never mind the lost income for as long as it takes. If you're one of his happy clients you already know what a FINE and responsible young man he is, and your well-wishes (and maybe more?) at this time will mean a lot to this most excellent Mexican family who have all served the community here in many ways over the years. And if his mother hasn't made it to you yet (was going around to clients' doors this a.m. ) now you know. 3 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
