    I hate this, but a Lafayette Cyclist died this morning.

    This is the story of him getting hit on the 19th. He passed away this morning and never woke from the coma. That's a bit of a mercy, in my opinion. His head injuries were bad enough that his life probably never would have been normal. He did have a helmet, but wasn't wearing it. His head hit the curb after being struck by a car. The driver is under arrest on charges of Vehicular Homicide.

    I'll post a link to the update story as soon as it's available.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    At least they're charging the driver. If only all the other families of fallen cyclists could be so lucky.

    My thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.
