    sad to hear that his flashing bicycle lights were not working and his helmet failed him. riding @ near 1 in the AM is not any fun either. that combined with potholes…..

    no one stopped to help him people got out. Looked. N took off. I was coming under bridge n i personally almost got hit by a white cadillac.
    Regardless no one deserves to just be left. I was sickened at humanity here. It was cold. No one helped him. I called for help thru onstar. Parked n ran to help. I pray for the person who hit him
