Remember, wear your helmet!

A good reminder to always wear your helmet when bicycling.

Marion County sheriff's deputies said 18-year-old Heather Wolff, of Scotts Mills, was trying to avoid hitting a car driven by 30-year-old Brandon Steinke, of Salem, when she was thrown over the handlebars of her bicycle. Her head was run over by a rear wheel of the car.

Deputies said the bike helmet was crushed but Wolff was released from Salem Hospital shortly after the Wednesday night accident.

It's not always the fall that gets you.  It can be the actions that come afterwards.
