KTLA: Two Cyclists “Collide with” Target Truck in Crosswalk

As we've seen before, the passive language of the accident's description makes it seem as though the poor truck driver was just minding his own business when kamikaze cyclists slammed into his truck.  Unfortunately, one of the cyclists, a 20 year old construction apprentice named Jakob Weathermon, died as a result of the crash while the other was rushed to the ER.

While many safety advocates urge cyclists to ride on the road, not the sidewalk, to help avoid these kinds of accidents, any driver, especially a professional, has no excuse for hitting people  that are in a crosswalk while your vehicle is making a turn.

If anyone wants more information of the crash, the Daily Breeze has the details.
