Madison Police Department Sgt. Chris Boyd said the officer at the scene urged Lipscomb to keep the helmet. He did. It is all flattened and mangled and broken, unlike his head.The article also contains this choice quote from the bicyclist himself:
I didn't see it coming, but I sure felt it roll over my head. It feels really strange to have a truck run over your head.Indeed, Mr. Libscomb. Indeed.
