We drove by minutes after the crash, and I saw a person laying on ground, covered with a blanket/coat?? and several people were standing around -- they looked shocked. And, one person kneeling next to the person on the ground. Emergency crews were not on the scene yet.
It also appeared that one car had rear-ended another car. After we past, I glanced in my mirror and that is when I saw the mangled bike.
Can not get it out of my mind. I hope the cyclist is okay, but the faces of those standing there are haunting me.
Very sad news.
I couldn't find anything on the Trib or Sun-Times web sites, but there are lots of fluff pieces. Looks like most of their reporters are taking the day off.
I wrote to a Sun Times reporter earlier today who's covered past tragedies but no response.
I don't think the lack of media can be taken as any indication of the cyclist's fate, unfortunately.
That must be a really bad intersection. I actually met Tyler's Mom last year up here in Minneapolis (on business). Sounds like they need to post some signs. I'm always skittish around expressway and interstate exit and entrance ramps.
Hate that intersection. It doesn't matter which direction I'm going on Logan, it's harrowing. I hope that cyclist is okay...
