Consider this an advertisement for wearing a bike helmet. Ryan Lipscomb was biking through Madison, Wis. He tried to avoid a turning truck. He flipped his bike, and fell to the pavement, where the truck ran over his head. Lipscomb can prove the truck ran over his head because he can show you the tread marks on his helmet. He is around to show you those tread marks because he only suffered a concussion.
