Car v. bicycle crashes: Motorists at fault just over half the time, police report says

In this week's feature, "On a Roll," we take a look at the growth of cycling in Denver and the potentially fatal consequences. As more Denver residents are hopping on bikes, tensions on the road seem to be at an all-time high -- and collisions between bikes and cars certainly are. Here, we dig deeper into a recent police report on where crashes are happening, who is at fault, and how the problem, at least by some measures, is worsening.
