A Spokane Valley firefighter who was seriously injured in a bike crash in June is urging people to wear a helmet. Montana Sturges, 24, just returned to work last week at Spokane Valley Fire Station 10, after four months of recovery. Sturges and his girlfriend were riding their bikes on a quiet street just a few blocks from home in Coeur d’Alene when the crash happened. When he woke up after a medically induced coma, his coworkers were there to support him. “I remember about one minute before it. I remember riding my bike home from dinner," Sturges said. "The first thing I remember is about a month later. When I do remember waking up in the hospital, these guys were the guys that were there. They'd sit by the bed and they'd hold my hand.”
