Sad story and may the Lord comfort the family. Not being mean or anything, but just when are they going to do something about bicycles on the road, they do not belong on the road they belong on the sidewalk, in the park, etc, not the roads we drive on. It is dangerous enough for cars & trucks much less a bicycle that does not have lights, turn signals, brake lights, or anything else required to drive on public roads. They need to make it illegal to ride a bicycle, golf cart, 4 wheeler, etc.
