Effri and Chewy run over by lorries in the same day
4.03.08 by Buffalo Bill
It’s a terrible start to a week that I hoped would be better than the last.
First, we heard the news that a messenger had been killed near Finsbury Square. A morning of phone calls established that he was not dead, merely very seriously injured. His name is Effri, he worked at Destinations, and he is currently in hospital recovering from operations to repair his legs. They were shattered by a lorry.
At the moment I do not have any credible information regarding the nature of the collision that put him down, so I can’t tell you more. I welcome any more information that anyone might have.
Then later on in the day this picture was posted on the London Fixed Gear Forum (thanks Todd), and it was obvious that a lorry was involved. Today the crash victim himself was posting to the MT forum from hospital. Glad to see you are ok, mate. Chewy rode for citysprint.
2 guys under lorries in the same day. Thank god you are both still alive.
People have already been talking about passing the hat to get these guys some money. If anyone wants to do that, MT will support you. Just don’t ask me to look after the money. As soon as I finish this, I will be posting 2 claims on their behalf to the Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund.
