recent new story regarding 19-year old Tracey Sparling, killed in downtown portland.
linky to story:
what the story does not point out is that she was hit, while proceeding forward on a green light after pausing for the red light and a downtown intersection.
left of her in the right most lane of traffic was a cement truck that apparently did not see her.
she went straight, the truck turned right into her and crushed her. tragic.
local news media (katu 2 or katu.com) just ran a story where several cyclists were given air time pointing out the dangerousness of bike lanes downtown. i'm waiting for them to post a news clip of the story the just ran so that I can put up that link, it is worth watching.
