In a previous post, I detailed the journey a few of my friends are currently taking. They are riding motorbikes from Europe to the southern tip of Africa. While in Africa their travels caught the attention of a reporter from Agence France-Presse. The reporter wrote a story which wound up being published on Yahoo! News. It’s a good read.
The group was in Ethiopia where they encountered an extremely serious situation. They were riding with two fellow Canadians whom they had met earlier in Africa. Unfortunately, one of the new riders hit a young boy who had darted out in front of the bike without looking. It was an unavoidable accident but the boy sustained serious injuries.
Tyson’s blog post describes the incident better than I could, so if you’re interested, please read it there. Stay safe boys.
