Cyclist Killed in Collision with Summit Security Last Night

You have probably heard already, but a cyclist was struck and killed last night by a military vehicle. It happened at 12th and New York Ave NW.

You can read about it here, here, here, here, and here.

I don’t have anything to add. Just didn’t feel right to blog without mentioning it. I echo Washcycle’s thoughts as they’re worth repeating:

Our thoughts should all be with the victim’s friends and family at the moment. While I don’t want to distract from that, I hope MPD and the Secret Service conduct a thorough investigation as well as take a long look at their security and motorcade policies after this tragedy.
