And this is why people need to look both ways before crossing the street. Didn't get mom teach her that?. Now who is going to pay for the damage to the bus? RTS should sue the family for damages done to the bus, and rpd should write a ticket to the dead lady for not having head/tail lights and a horn/bell.

Why was this person riding a bike on snow and Ice covered roads at 1:00 AM in temps that are near zero? First thing I learned when I rode a motorcycle. You have to ask yourself, were do you want to place your self in assuming risk? I would not put myself in downtown traffic on 490 heading east on a work day at 5:15PM that's for sure. This person was not thinking.

You people make me sick to my stomach. This is disgusting. Yesenia was a hardworking productive member of society. She was a single mother who raised an autistic son and this is how the community is going to remember her? You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

I totally agree! Get a grip, people! This woman was biking. She wasn't standing on a street corner selling crack. Smh. Seriously. WTF is wrong with people!

Blacks in the street all the time walking and ridding bikes. They can not use sidewalks. Thats just to easy. Just walk in front of cars and buses and weave in and out of traffic with bikes.

I noticed the same thing. Blacks are all over like shit. Just not on the sidewalks. One walked in front of me the other day as if to say hit me.

When? A few days ago the 77 year old man? That was at 3:45 during daylight hours walking on the shoulder of a road and a vehicle struck HIM it totaly the Drunk drivers fault..... He wasn't riding a bike at 245 am, riding wrecklasly in traffic in front of commercial vehicles with no lights. I bet the bus driver was sober. Maybe if the lady wasn't high on crack cocaine that she got from dr lewek she would still be with us today... wait what was the question.
