Bicyclist Killed in Dinkytown
A bicyclist was hit and killed in Dinkytown at the intersection of 15th Ave SE and 4th St SE this morning. It appears that a semi truck was involved. I have asked the Police Department for more information.
It's clear that there is an emerging pattern of fatalities involving bicyclists and large trucks. Of the last six bicyclist fatalities in Minneapolis, four involved commercial trucks: at the intersections of 5th St S and Nicollet, 1st AveN and 5th St S, Park Ave S near 14th St S, and now this.
