Brett:         Bad news and my sympathies.  I got doored when I was 10 years
old. Fortunately the driver was a doctor. I was riding without rubber grips
on the handlebars of my Schwinn, and took the handlebar end almost in the
left eye.  Not only did the Doc treat me right on the spot, but he showed up
at our house the next day with a gift of grips. Embarrassed the hell out of
my Dad who couldn't see the value of grips. I still carry the scar.  

Ever since I watch for occupied parked cars - they do not check before
