Teenager is killed in bike-truck crash
Sad but just another example of why sidewalks are not safer for cyclists. My favorite quote was the end, O'Fallon Police Capt. Mike Skeen said, "As far as I can see, there is probably no blame on the driver; I don't think either one saw the other one until the last minute, and it was just too late for everybody to stop."
Truck 1, Cyclist (ped) 0
I state ped because he wasn't on the road where he should have been. Also nowhere do they recommend cyclists to get on the road and to stay off the sidewalks. Cars rule and everyone else stay off the sidewalks and the streets!
