Map of the Area


This is the second bicyclist to be killed by a Metro train within a three day span. As a matter of fact, it was the exact same set of tracks and only a few miles south. Investigators need to be busting their butts trying to determine the exact causes of these accidents. The likelihood is that these two incidents are a coincidence, but if these deaths could have been prevented at all, then a solution needs to be found. Until those investigations are complete, all we can do is wait.
