The only follow-up was a letter to my home from a debt collector, offering a 90% discount. The hospital didn't sue me, so I seem to have got away with it. A few years later the hospital changed its name to the Zuckerberg San Francisco General, so they're probably not broke.
As a fellow head-injury-after-cycling-incident person, I'm deeply jealous of this story. Walking home from the recovery care ward in hospital pyjamas so I could get a decent night's sleep doesn't sound half as exotic.
On Coldharbour Lane it isn't even remotely unusual.
Gawd. At least you got some free pyjamas. I didn't manage to nick anything. Pyjamas would have been such a good souvenir.
Yep, done the dizzy dance riding home after a whack to the bonce. I was in hospital for ten days ‘observation’ with a blood clot at the front of my brain and the mother and father of all headaches. A former nurse GF couldn’t believe they left me to improve and didn’t drain it.

Spatial awareness fails.
And for those wondering, it's not a rising bollard, it's a width restriction that just happens to have a rising bit of curb leading to the first bollard on the left, so cars that misjudge things get partially lifted up onto the bollard.
Not very clear on the video, but they're obvs just very poor drivers looking at that Street View pic... Amazing...
Why have a 2 foot high bollard?
A normal size one would be more visible.

Me I guess, for thinking parking outside a church on a Sunday morning was a solid way of swerving the paid parking inside the park we were a-visiting.
I'm sure Jesus had one or two things to say about personalised number plates.
One old dear did come out to tell us "she doesn't care if she gets a fine, God will pay it!"
I did a lol. Can't argue with that logic
Jesus died for your parking sins.
The meek shall inherit the berth.
yeah i've got nothing.

Parker don't preach. they're in trouble deep
This is amazing, Chris Morris would've rejected this as being too far fetched.
Wow, that's amazing, even worse is the tweet or express link saying the interviewee froze on air when he was quite obviously pausing to let the stupidity breath.
