I didn’t know Bruce Rosar, but the overwhelming response to his death has caught all of our attention. Bruce was an experienced cyclist, a tireless advocate for cycling and a safety instructor. A car mowed him down in Apex, North Carolina. Police took a statement from the driver, who said Bruce made a wrong turn. Hopefully there will be further investigation into the incident — as Cyclelicio.us’ Richard Masoner notes, the other key witness is dead. (A local cycling forum indicates that others witnessed the accident, and police have asked for persons with information to come forward. Those who knew him express skepticism that a careful veteran like Bruce could fail to see a car coming at him.)
Thanks to Richard for putting together a full link list on Bruce’s death.
