Randall's bike/car accident is very unfortunate, but it's a very poor example of what you should do if involved in a similar crash. As he stated, both parties were clearly shaken by the incident and not in a position to objectively assess the situation. Always exchange information and always file a police report.

Whenever there is a bike/car accident, the most important thing to do is tell the cyclist what they did wrong.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
