Marlene Pineda Bike Accident

Sad news about Marlene Pineda, a 24 year old Smith College graduate who was killed in a bicycle accident on Monday August 16, 2010.  She was riding down a hill in Brighton MA when she was hit by a car.  I am familiar with the area as I have commuted on that road, and I know from personal experience that drivers can be careless and distracted by various things including the train tracks and the carriage road.  The City is trying to do a better job making Boston more accomodating to cyclists but this unfortunate event shows that there's still a long way to go.
