    That intersection is part of my daily 10 mile ride. Although it’s tragic that a cyclist got hit by a car, he should have never crossed on a red. As a cyclist you have to follow the same rules of the road as a vehicle I’m an avid cyclist, I’ve almost gotten hit a few times myself and I follow the rules of the road. One time was someone texting while driving and the other time was a stop sign runner. Both times were so close I thought my number was up. Be careful out there!

    Any update on the biker?

  3. They want to take him off life support in the morning but not sure when.
    I am a family member of his! The doctors will have a meeting with his
    family in the early this morning!

  4. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. My mom is really good friends with his mom. We grew up together, practically like family.
