Cyclist Killed in Downtown Seattle

R.I.P. Sher Kung. Mother. Cyclist. Ghost bike…

On Friday a woman was killed at the intersection of 2nd Ave and University St. in downtown Seattle when a left-turning truck struck her. I ride this road frequently – it is a known death trap. The city had this information for years yet nothing was done. And this tragedy highlights the consequence of Seattle’s negligence – a death only a week before the opening of a new, safer bike lane. Let this be a lesson to cities around the world: when there is a known problem any delay in improving safety is too long. This death could have been avoided.
