Tragedy in Chinatown

More evidence that cars are horrible people-killing monsters that should be banished to underground tunnels. Too awful for words.

Horrid story...

We just had this hit and run of a cyclist here in Santa Monica - the rider is still in critical condition.

In the news today it said it happened shortly after midnight, with no lights on the bike, and that the cyclist "may have been drinking a beer" at the time of the accident. I imagine the driver of the car was loaded too. I know that area and while I don't know the exact location of the accident, I avoid 20th street in that area since there is just zero space for bikes. Tragic though, and shows how we need to work for bike safety, and ride defensively.
