The Northwest Herald published a story about Eric Woods’ being hit by bullet fragments in Sunday’s paper, which I got for free at the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.
The most interesting part was McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren’s characterizing the injuries as “road rash.”
When I read the words, I thought of the type injury that a motorcyclist would receive if he fell off his cycle.
I looked it up and here’s how I found it defined:
“skin and bone injury caused by abrasion with road surfaces”
At the link you can see photos of such an injury and the resulting scars.
