Heading back to work after a month plus with/of a broken collar bone; baby steps. Should be back on my bike in a month. Back to square one,” shared Dennis Onsarigo

The Cases Files reporter, who had been admitted to the Aga Khan hospital, escaped death by a whisker after an overlapping truck almost ran him over after he lost control of his bike.

Through his Instagram , Onsarigo revealed that he underwent a six-hour surgery. He said that he was lucky to be alive and it was time to figure out what the accident means as God has given him a second chance.

Dennis Onsarigo Post

“I went riding a bike  on Saturday.. I had done 23Kms one way when a truck left the main road on to my path wanting to overlap
I decide I will not let it outdo me, a blanket of dust while atop a bike is the least I wanted.

I step on the peddle, look over my shoulder and the truck has now increased its speed; step on the pedal again and the truck driver impatient now honks… glancing back for a third time …The truck is literally inches of “breathing” distance away from me..

 I turn my head before I can leave the bicycle path, I lose control of the beast.. pushed over by lack of balance, I land head first – thank God I had a helmet- then on my shoulder; the landing force tosses me just a yard from the truck

Screams from other motorists, slamming on the brakes and now lost in dust, I can only hear my breathing.. I try lifting myself up, I can’t. A sharp pain on my collar bone tells me I have fractured something.
Long story short, I survived a truck crashing me.. it was a touching distance from where I lay.

Flashback: previous night a colleague had told me not to go riding after I told them I wasn’t sure about riding on that road. That morning, I bought a new helmet and said a prayer ,something I rarely do when going biking.
As I was wheeled into the operating room for a six hour surgery, it hit me; life is short .. when the surgeons dimmed the lights on, I had died for six hours… what if I never returned?

Lucky to be alive and I guess it is time I figured out what this accident means.”
