Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
"Police say there investigation has revealed the woman was not at fault in the accident, and probably wouldn't be facing charges if she hadn't fled the scene. "
Two posssibilities here:
1 She was drunk.
2 She's a complete moron.
Either way, she really has no business being on the road. She should never drive again.
I hope they nail her to the wall for leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

As far as the article goes - the accident was the biker's fault.
The only knock on the lady is that she fled. If she had stayed she would not have a chance of going to jail. Hit & run is a big deal, so she'll see some jail time.
I doubt that she'll lose her license forever, or spend a long time in jail.
The second someone gets behind the wheel of a car any human or animal death that results is completely their fault. **** cars.
scum. gas chamber.
the second you pilot a several ton vehicle you better be god damn sure you can handle everything it's capable of. a cyclist hitting a cyclist rarely results in death, a cyclist with a trailer striking a cyclist rarely results in death.
I'm sorry, but if you go leap out in front of a car and get FUBAR, that's your problem, not the drivers'. If the driver is driving like a ****ing ******* and runs you down, it's their problem. See how that works?
you dont understand but i dont care
You're right I don't understand. Why should someone else be to blame for your irresponsible actions?
driving is an irresponsible action ****tard
Feel free to go test your little theory anytime, tehz. Run some red lights. I'm thinking the judge is gonna tell you the same thing while you're in your body cast.
I already know that **** happens. And it's ****ed up. That does not, however, give you the right to ride like a ****ing idiot with impunity. If you cause the crash, you're at fault. If they cause the crash, they're at fault, and should be held liable.
^ Grandpa, what are you doing on a bike forum???
