Holy S!## - David, if you need anything at all, you just let us know. I'm very glad you were not more seriously injured, not that a broken collar bone isn't serious. I'll be sending positive vibes your way. F'in cars!

Please use all of your arcane CrossFit powers to get better quickly. CFSBK is not the same without our unbreakable leader!!!

Let me know if you need any t-shirts that say 'I got into a car crash and I broke my collar bone and I got was this lousy t-shirt' ... I know people and I can make that happen with a quickness.

Potential Customer: So why do you CrossFit?

David: So I can WRESTLE CARS.

Get well, D.O. As above, let us know if you need anything.

June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJoe
Did you get the license plate number? Because I'd like to...um, "educate" that driver about bike safety.

I echo Charlotte's sentiments; please let us know if you need anything!

Sending posi-vibes your way for a speedy recovery!
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSnip
Ouch! Get well soon, dude.

What are you doing? Proving your own slogans that strong people are harder to kill.

Found a pick of the car.


Get well better buddy
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNYWINEGUY

Argh! Wishing you a super-speedy recovery. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help while you get better.

I will attempt free-standing handstands in your honor while you are gone. Key word there was "attempt".
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBecca
Typo alert - Chins are exposure 4 of 4

David - Heal well, my man...great time to get ahead on the sleep challenge!
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFox
So glad it wasn't worse. Nothing scares me more as a rider and a driver.

hope you are insured. If not, we could have a fundraiser wod.

get well and come back soon.
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercarlos & christine
get well buddy! again, if you need anything let any one of us know!

i've been there twice and can tell you, you will bounce back quickly and be doing push jerks in no time! the best medicine is sleep, trashy television and a lot of ice cream.

really glad it was just a collarbone. xo
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterstephaniep

June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAvi
David - I'm so glad you're going to be okay. That's scary stuff. I hope it doesn't hurt to laugh when your collar-bone is broken, because people posted some some pretty funny car jokes. Of course if you need anything, just holler.
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

Damn. I've been there, David. Broken bones kind of suck completely, but it's just as bad that I haven't even been able to see you yet since returning from Mongol! Yes on speedy recovery, yes on well wishes.

Get better soon David!Also, i agree with the "didja get the license plate number" sentiment.


you know... just sayin, some people shouldnt be on the road.
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenna

Thank you So much for all the kind words! It was a wonderful surprise to wake up to all this. I'm doing okay, heavily medicated right now which makes a hugggeeee difference.

I was riding in the left side bike lane on degraw, going to the gym when a car on my right made a sudden left turn into a parking spot. It cut me off but we both breaked in time not to make contact with each other. The sudden stop threw me over the handle bars and I landed on my left shoulder, I was wearing my bike chain over that arm so when i hit the floor my chain and clavicle were the first to make contact. It snapped right in half. Owie. The driver stopped and called an ambulance and they took me to methodist.

coincidentally, the driver is the owner of Sheeps Station so he knew who i was, also coincidentally, a woman who saw the accident and brought me ice was someone who had rsvp'd to come to teaser class on saturday.

so ive got a butterfly fracture in my left clavicle, theres about an inch and a half separation between the broken ends in the middle. Doc says i probably wont be able to use it for 3+ months. I still need to see an ortho to see if ill need surgery or not.

I was very very very very lucky considering I was NOT wearing a helmet. I've learned my lesson on that...

Sam has been taking great care of me so i'm in really good hands right now. My roomate Mike is a medical student too so hes been helping out a lot as well. My mom also came by yesterday and today to take me home from the hospital and set me up at home. Thanks for all the offers to come help! Id like to get off pain killers asap but right now the difference without them is night and day.

Ill keep you all updated with my progress and hope to be back coaching asap.

If you'd like to do something for me please work on your handstands and mobility!!!

Huge thanks to our amazing staff of coaches who immediately organized to cover all the classes, programming and blogging while ill be gone. I'm really fortunate to work with such an incredibly professional and considerate team
June 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDavid Osorio
David, so sorry to hear, but very glad you are OK.

If you want/need reading material, Ritchie meant to tell you that he brought you that book on NYC Rats; it's on the shelf at CFSB. If you want something less gross, let us know!

Take care,

David - I'm a member/trainer at CFNYC and really enjoyed working out at CFSBK a few times. One of our members mentioned your accident on our blog and I wanted to drop by and wish you a speedy recovery. Good luck and hope to train with you all again soon!
