It hasn't rained in Bloomington in forever, the roads are oily and todays rain brought down lots of leaves. A team of four Little 5ers were very unfortunately hit by a car riding on south 446 north of the lake. They happened to be Cutters and the social media has gone a little haywire! Eric Brodell, one of the their rookies (who already has a pet name- Skeeter) has suffered a serious leg injury while Eric Young and Michael Schroeder were hit but not seriously hurt. The HT has the developing story. I have no knowledge more than that but it appears a consequence of (maybe) driving too fast on slick roads and being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The comments on the HT article indicate that plenty of people have noticed that the roads were dangerous today. I hope everyone gets well soon as I would do if it were the 'Cutters' or 'Hoosier Climber' and this story makes everyone slow down just a touch.

Personal experience says that if you hit a car make sure that it never gets driven again.
