I had a doctor’s visit today, and didn’t get back until almost 3PM (CDT). Long day and then I had a huge Feed to wade through. MD you aren’t getting a 3 foot passing law, a man that killed one woman and chopped a second in half while drunk also hit a cyclist 3 years ago but was not charged criminally in the wreck with the cyclist. And that is just some of the stuff I didn’t link to in the Feed.
The big story today was from the UK. Coroner records verdict of accidental death on 17-year-old cyclist killed in collision with school bus in Abingdon and from the Beeb Pupil cyclist death ‘accidental’ From my take on this the kid had no idea that the bus was turning and the driver didn’t look. In my book that’s not an “accident”, that’s negligent manslaughter, but until we get people in LEO that acknowledge that motor vehicles are WMDs.
A man is sentenced in the death of a cyclist. Man upset with verdict given to Fort Pierce driver who killed his brother Th defense was trying to make points by calling the cyclist’s legally assisted cycle a “Homemade motorcycle” but the plea bargain takes all that away.
The caught the hit-and-run driver that killed a cyclist in St. Paul. Man charged in accident that killed cyclist in St. Paul I wish they could have made a better charge, but there were only 2 witnesses, one that died and the one that drove away. Apparently in order to charge with manslaughter there has to be a surviving witness other than the perpetrator.
And our final report for the day is another UK story with fortunately a happy ending. Seven-year-old boy is hurt in cycle accident Fortunately it was only a minor injury
And that’s it.
