    Bicyclist killed in the east bay

    From today's Oakland Tribune:

    A bicyclist was killed Tuesday afternoon at the intersection of Joe Morgan Way and 66th Avenue, near the Coliseum in East Oakland.

    Jim Dawson, 44, of Oakland, was hit by a truck after he rode into the busy intersection at 4:27 p.m., according to the Alameda County Coroner's Bureau.

    He died in surgery at Highland Hospital.
    That's only a couple of blocks from my commute.

    That article seems to imply that he ran a stop sign/light?

    I don't find Joe Morgan Way. Is that a new name for Coliseum Way? That looks like a busy road with lots of commercial traffic.

    Yup, part of it was recently renamed.
