But was he wearing a tekvest?

Jokes aside, glad he's OK, awful shame about the arm. Hope it wasn't his good hand side.

I can imagine how it happened too, i'm always riding on the side of those snowbanks to try and save my carbides a bit when riding pavement - think i'm gonna quit that habit now after reading this. Better the carbides than me

As someone who also plays an instrument, that just fucking sucks. Damn.

Prosthesis has come a long way, hopefully he won't be too crippled.

My guess he was moving a good clip in order to cleanly sever his arm.

SLOW DOWN PEOPLE .... especially near immovable objects.

Adrenaline must of been pumping something fierce if he didn't even realize his arm was gone

Slow down is right damnit.
