    Thanks for the post. I would like to know more about the cause of this tragedy; in particular, if the motorist is responsible, I hope someone follows up with a report on his sentencing.

    For the first collision, there's no discussion at all about how the collision occurred yet the authors are very clear with their feelings about how dangerous the roads are for cyclists

    In the second collision, right before the intersection where it occurred, the road widens (or so it appears) and a bike lane starts up on the right side of the road right after the intersection. The collision sounds like a standard right hook with the cyclist riding off to the side in that newly available space. It's ironic that it involved a FedEx truck only because in another thread about a right hook death, Robert Hurst was just commenting on how you never hear about UPS delivery trucks right hooking cyclists. I wonder if FedEx drivers receive different training.

    Most Fedex Drivers Own their trucks.
    UPS are All Union Drivers.

    Yeah lost to situations can be rough. As Ken Kifer had passed because of stupidity of a drunk driver it is to bad such things do occur. May he rest in peace.
    When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman
