    Since you didn't post any information, I can only conjecture that he (or she) may (or may not) have been wearing a helmet. Surely the rider (or riders if it was a tandem) were taking the lane (or riding on the sidewalk, as the case may be), which obviously contributed to the crash. In any event, the cager (or JABD) was undoubtedly at fault, even though the cyclist ran the red light (or stop sign)...

    I refuse to argue. You can't make me. You're wrong.

    And this would be a good time to review the information at bicyclesafe.com, specifically sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 19.
    Oh, and always use lights, streamers, a mirror, a holographic rearview projector, bright clothing, and an antimatter chamber.

    Hey, don't knock streamers.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    The bus was parked, the CYCLIST hit the bus, killing the driver.

    I hate buses. They srop in the bike line to pick up and drop off passengers, there is usually too much traffic to merge and go on their left. School busses are worse. They stop in the bike lane, turn on those flashers and cut off the engine till the kid gets inside!!
