A Palo Alto High School student was hospitalized after his bicycle collided with an SUV on his way to school Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Sophomore Ken Shin, who keeps a photography blog on Tumblr, posted Sunday, Nov. 4, that he's in stable condition "but it'll be awhile until I'll be shooting again."
Paly Principal Phil Winston confirmed Monday that the student was hospitalized, "has undergone a few surgeries and is doing well recovering."
An accident matching the time of Shin's collision was logged by police as "accident minor injury" at the corner of Cowper Street and Santa Rita Avenue, but police would neither confirm nor deny that it was the same incident.
"It's under investigation by our specialized traffic team that does accidents and I have information but I cannot give it to you," police Officer Marianna Villaescusa said.
Fire department logs indicated rescue vehicles were at the scene for about an hour and a half.
On Sunday, Shin posted his own description of the collision on his Tumblr blog: "I got run over by a Lexus SUV four days ago while riding my bike to school."
"Both wheels went over my head and took out a couple ribs and most of my jaw. I would have died instantly, but my $10 helmet saved me. I'm in stable condition, but it'll be awhile until I'll be shooting again. Or eating solid foods."
