Watch Out For Bicycles

4 comments

Last week, I looked at the issue of increased bicyclist deaths in Minnesota. A Wednesday morning, Semi/ Bicycle death brought the issue home again this week. A semitrailer driver had began to make a wide left turn at the intersection of Park Avenue and E. 14th Street and hit a long time cyclist with it’s back tires.

A witness said that the bike had been stopped at the light and like the semi began to go forward when the light changed. The semi than turned and unexpectedly drove over the rider. Police are still investigating as to what else happened. Clearly, it’s a tragedy that needs to be considered by all drivers and riders.

This is one of the many riders that was remembered with the Wednesday evening Ride of Silence. The number of bike riders will continue to grow, hopefully, keeping this in mind will make it safer for everyone.

    This is aweful! Situational awareness is vital for both drivers and cyclists. If both had used it, then perhaps this could have been avoided.

    it’s one of those that should have been avoided. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

    PLEASE watch out for bikes, and bikers PLEASE watch out for turning vehicles. Another tragedy that should not have happened.
