I hate recreational cyclists who use up the extra lane that was taken out of 2nd street eastbound and the gang packed fixed gear bikers who break the law too, Miles.

It is sad...she was 50 my age. The day she was hit was my 51 birhtday. this woman had a life she worked hard to have and developed. She had family and friends she left behind. Now her beloved pets are orphaned and need forever homes. She has 1 dog and 4 indoor cats who wait in a shelter now without their mom. Her family & friends are devastated. Bicycle or not, the girl that hit her, 19 or not. She is gone. Forever the 19 yr. old will know the truth and she will live with it until her own death. And now those who know the 19 yr. old can watch and see what she learns and does with her life from here on out. It could have happened to any one of us. But it happened to the 19 yr. old. But there is still one woman who had pets had a life, had people who depended on her and now she is gone forever from this world we know as our lives. May the Angels hold you high and God praise all the goodness you were here and all the greatness you are there. Amen.
