As part of the biking family in Middle Tn, we know that Chattanooga has a great tradition for advocacy and organization when it comes to biking. We mourn your loss and pray for his family.
I hope the authorities will hold this driver responsible and not just shrug their shoulders and say "Oh well, too bad". We should all be held responsible for our actions.
The fact that the truck hit him brings to mind the legal term from Latin "Res ipsa loquitur". The act speaks for itself. The driver was not 3 feet away. Please enforce this law!!
