details are sketchy, but a cop on a bike was in the lane and got hit by a motorist in Tacoma.
was the bike cop at fault? did the driver fail to yield? or was the policeman just not conspicious enough? perhaps an electronic distraction device used by the driver at the time of the collision prevented the driver from noticing the policeman.
further evidence as to the fallacy of lane position as traffic cure-all, regardless of lane position.
