Reader: Gelseigh Karl-Cannon, cyclist, didn't do anything wrong before fatal accident
Our post about the crash that killed cyclist Gelseigh Karl-Cannon in Cherry Creek North focused on the incredible promise of the young Columbia grad while noting the rising concern over bike safety. According to one of our many commenters, Karl-Cannon appears to simply have been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
First Avenue narrows sharply just at the point where she was hit. She was riding with the flow of traffic, as far to the right as she could get. She was doing the best she could. It is a tragedy and I hope her family and others who knew her can find a way to bear the terrible loss of a daughter, sister and friend. She seemed like a lovely person.
