Just saw a report that a female cyclist was struck and killed in DC today at 12th St and New York Ave in NW. The driver remained on the scene.

Stay safe out there!

It wasn't just any car. It was a Humvee -- a military vehicle used to protect the leaders of the free and not so democratically elected tyrants in town for the Use Less Nukes summit. DC wants statehood. We got it -- a Police State!

12th & New York Ave NW is outside of the barricades aka the Green Zone. So sad. Totally senseless.

I'm against cars and SUVs that back into cyclists. On a 1-way street no less. Drive a monster truck around but don't run over me.

Humvees have their place - Iraq, A'stan, Sudan, etc. Not in downtown DC.

Justin,

I'm not sure this is the appropriate time for levity. Of all people, we should understand the seriousness of the situation.

Blaming this tragic accident on a "Police State" is also a little disingenuous...
