Cyclist Killed on Comm Ave
Second biker to die in four weeks
A 23-year old male cyclist was killed Thursday morning in a collision with a tractor-trailer at Commonwealth Avenue and St. Paul Street. Witnesses say both the truck and the cyclist were traveling east on Comm Ave at about 8:30 a.m., and the collision occurred when the truck made a wide right turn onto St. Paul Street. BU and Boston police have cordoned off the area and closed Comm Ave eastbound. The incident is being investigated by the Boston Police Department. No citations have been issued.
It is the second fatal bike accident in the area in less than a month. On November 12, Chung-Wei Yang (CAS’15) was killed when he was struck by a number 57 MBTA bus at the busy Allston intersection of Harvard and Brighton Avenues.2 Comments
