A few days ago a resident of Healy, Alaska was struck and killed while riding her bike to work at Denali National Park. It was a trip she made frequently. The road has good shoulders and at the time she was struck it was daylight with good visibility. In fact cycling of most types is relatively safe, efficient and fun in that area. Her death is a sad thing and impacts not only the community but the whole area.
The glad part comes because the assailant left part of his vehicle at the scene. Although her body wasn't found for several hours the evidence helped get the investigation started. The Alaska State Troopers took that evidence and began to search. It didn't take long to track down the vehicle and its' operator. Even after the delay he still showed above legal limit alcohol level. He confessed and was incarcerated. Based on history he will get some jail time.
