sucks...

heard the news through ira when he posted it on chifg.com...



holy sh*t!! according to the sun-times...

A car crashed into a busy Loop Starbucks on State Street this morning, smashing a plate glass window but missing customers inside as well as pedestrians on the usually bustling sidewalk.

...

Josh Korby, a bike messenger, was inside the coffee shop when the Grand Am rammed the window.

“I heard a large crash and the wall starting shaking,” Korby said, while still sipping his coffee. “There was a lady standing by the revolving door and she jumped back.”

When Korby exited he realized his bike was a casualty.

“I thought, wait a minute, there’s a car on the sidewalk where my bike used to be,” he said.

His bike was mangled.




damn korby...im glad no one was seriously injured. hope you bounce back from this. i know it's silly but people get attached to their bikes and losing the bike can...well...suck. even more so for a messenger...it's what makes them money. for the entire story click here...peace.
