There are literally hundreds of things that could go wrong during your road race, but this runner in Belgium found what might possibly be the worst one.
Somehow he continues on. If it had been me, there would have been video of several more minutes of whimpering while curled into the fetal position.
Jose Luquin suffered broken bones and a kidney injury in the accident. Crosby claimed the sun was in his eyes and he never saw Luquin, who was jogging with traffic instead of facing it. The police never gave Crosby a sobriety test.
Running Is Funny has exclusively obtained Crosby’s narrative of what happened that fateful evening:
It was one of those nights when you drive
Right by your own street and you wonder who’s running
…And the distance between me and my pavement
Seemed to get a hundred yards long
…I keep on tryin’ to tune in, tune in on the radio
Trying to tune me out of my trance
…At least a car goes where you steer it
Sometimes that’s the only thing it does
