First responders arrived at the scene to find Li with severe head injuries. EMTs rushed him to the Lutheran Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

Wow! It's weird because I always see mouthbreathers post here about all these dangerous scofflaws riding bicycles, and here we are with yet another self entitled motorist committing carnage.

Perhaps there should be laws requiring drivers to be licensed and insured, as there should be for bicycles.

Why wasn’t the driver named? Cover up? Be prepared for cyclist ticket blitz nearby to catch all those dangerous cyclists who “almost hit me” and make me so scared.

Paper blames pedestrian- “crossing against the light” and a “continuing investigation”’ will lead to nothing as drifrrnstayed on the scene

People have no right to cross against the light but cars must slow if they see someone crossing, common sense, or goto jail
