Re: “UPDATED: Cyclist dies following downtown accident

There are still questions that have not been answered. Why would a driver pass a another vehicle / bicycle when there's a stop sign shortly ahead? Did the driver try to cut short the angle of the turn in order to pass the bicyclist, thus executing a dangerous and illegal maneuver? Where did the hit occur and where did the 15' end? Was the driver using a cell phone at the time? It's likely Gardner was aware of the Jeep and did not veer into the vehicle as the report states. Gardner was very aware and experienced with the area on his bike. Less is known about the driver of the jeep, though at 21, the experience is far less.

Charging someone with a crime probably would not do any good. However getting the facts clear and published would; especially if it creates patience, awareness and safety for the increasing number of drivers and bicyclists on the roads.
