    When cars and bicycle collide, the bicycle always loses. Regretably, but laws of phsics rule.

    This wreck was a failure of infrastructure designed to move motor vehicles as quickly as possible at the cost of any other modes. It's not even safe to catch a bus.

    That is just sad. My prayers for there family. This is why even in a nice neighborhood I won't ride by bike with the kids here. I save it for the park. :(
