There And Back Again: A Hobbit's Blog

I found out about this five minutes before starting a major exam. Ho hum.

From Kaiser Chiefs' official website:

"We felt we should post something here about an accident that happened on Sunday night in Leeds to quash any rumours.

Ricky was hit by a car whilst walking across a pedestrian crossing in Leeds town centre mid evening on Sunday. He's the luckiest man alive, because he is still alive, it sounds daft, but a 'Ricky trademark jump' has probably saved his life. The jump meant he was flipped over the top of the car, hitting the windscreen, rather than getting trapped under it. He was crossing on a green pedestrian light. Whether it was a joyrider, wreckless driving or drunk driving we still don't know. Police are investigating - we'd like to thank the witnesses that have come forward so far.

Ricky has escaped with minor injuries, a broken toe and bruising. He would like all of you to know he's ok, the band's next live dates on June 2nd, 3rd, 4th in Holland and Germany will go ahead as planned and he's on the road to recovery. Any press or media reading this - Ricky's unavailable for comment for legal reasons. Anyone wanting to help with information for the Police - please call Leeds Police Station on 0845 6060606 or 0113 241 3059.

We appreciate your help, we're all relieved and very pleased we still have a singer and all the practise leaping off the ground proved useful when it really mattered."

Poor Ricky! But cheer up Molyan, luckily he's OK.

Yes - just unnerved me a little. Poor guy. I've had to put so many 'get well soon' messages on the website now during the past year... he ought to learn to take care of himself...

At least his jumping payed off. Now if only I could find a use for hiding under tables........ we don't exactly get many earthquakes in the UK....

Funny you should say that, I hid under a table today. I was hiding from my old maths teacher :)
