"I was seriously injured when I was hit by a car this morning and San Luis Obispo, walking to the women’s march. I’ll be in Sierra Vista Hospital for the next couple days with surgery scheduled for tomorrow. My left leg is all messed up and it’s going to take a couple months of rehab before I can walk again."
