Biker doored & killed
1986 - 2008
The Windy City's Bike2Work Week has gotten off to a lousy start. A CTA bus struck and injured a biker Tuesday while on Monday, another was fatally doored. The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Miceli, 22, was cycling in the bike lane on La Salle around 6:45 p.m. Monday when he slammed into an open SUV door, was thrown from his bike, then struck by a second car. The driver of the Nissan Xterra who opened the door into Miceli's path was cited for opening a car door in traffic, police said.
