WHEN A PARKING DELIVERY TRUCK hit a cyclist pedaling past Clyde’s in Georgetown at around 9:15 a.m. this morning, sous chef Estaban Gonzalez didn’t hesitate.

“One of my line cooks came in asking me for a towel because this guy was bleeding a lot,” he said. “So we took two aprons, put them together. … It stopped the bleeding. Then the ambulance came and that’s it.”

Just an extraordinary act from an ordinary guy. Had he done anything like this before?

“This was my first time.”

Gonzalez says the cyclist was conscious and mostly shaken up. So, D.C. bike folks, if you’re pedaling past this restaurant any time soon, buy this fella a brew!
