Ghost Bicycle @ 20th/R & Ct. Ave. NW in Memory of Alice Swanson
Ghost Bicycle @ 20th/R & Ct. Ave. NW in Memory of Alice Swanson
Ghost Bikes are small and somber memorials for bicyclists who are killed or hit on the street. A bicycle is painted all white and locked to a street sign near the crash site, accompanied by a small plaque. They serve as reminders of the tragedy that took place on an otherwise anonymous street corner, and as quiet statements in support of cyclists' right to safe travel. The first ghost bikes were created in St. Louis, Missouri in 2003, and they have since appeared in at least 51 cities throughout the world. For those who create and install the memorials, the death of a fellow bicyclist hits home. We all travel the same unsafe streets and face the same risks; it could just as easily be any one of us. Each time we say we hope to never have to do it again -- but we remain committed to making these memorials as long as they are needed. ........................................................................................................................................................ Cyclist, 22, Dies After Being Hit by Truck Near Dupont Circle By Allison Klein Washington Post Staff Writer Wednesday, July 9, 2008 Alice Swanson was uneasy about riding her bike through city streets to work every morning, so a colleague told her to always wear a helmet for the trip, which was just over two miles. The helmet was not enough yesterday morning. Swanson, 22, was hit by a trash truck during rush hour near Dupont Circle and killed. The accident took place at 7:40 a.m. in the 1900 block of R Street NW, just north of Dupont Circle. Police said Swanson was riding in or next to a designated bike lane. She and the truck driver were traveling west on R Street when the truck driver turned right onto 20th Street, hitting her, police said. Swanson was trapped beneath the truck, police said. An officer in the uniformed division of the Secret Service who was nearby pulled her out and unsuccessfully tried to revive her. The driver of the truck was identified as Marco Rosendo Flores-Fuentes, 56, of Falls Church. No charges had been filed in the incident as of last night. Swanson, who lived on Park Road in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood, started work in January for the International Research and Exchanges Board, a nonprofit group on K Street NW. Keith Mellnick, a co-worker and friend, said she asked him about bike commuting, because she knew that was how he got to work. "She was nervous because of D.C. traffic," Mellnick recalled. Swanson was the first cyclist killed on D.C. streets this year, police said. Last year, two people died in bike accidents in the city. Swanson's father, Brian Swanson, choked back tears as he spoke briefly in a telephone interview from Northborough, Mass., Alice Swanson's home town. "I'm still in a daze," he said. "She was so full of energy and life." Eric Gilliland, executive director of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, said he was surprised that the accident happened on R Street, saying he bikes there frequently. He called it "one of the better roads to bike on" because it has a long bike lane. The accident took place about a block from his Connecticut Avenue office. "This hits us very hard in the office," said Gilliland, who works to promote bicycle safety. He said trucks are generally more hazardous to cyclists than cars because they are higher off the road and have more blind spots. The truck is owned by KMG Hauling, a Sterling-based company. KMG Hauling owner Hugo Garcia said his company is investigating the accident. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the deceased," Garcia said. Garcia declined to say how long Flores-Fuentes had been employed by KMG or whether his company was working for the city or a private residence or business. Swanson had an internship in Washington last year at the Middle East Institute, a nonpartisan think tank. She graduated from Amherst College with a degree in Middle East history, according to the institute's Web site. The site says she studied Arabic at the institute. She remained in the city after that and began work in January as a program associate at the International Research and Exchanges Board, an organization that promotes international education. The organization released a statement saying: "The loss comes as a terrible shock to all of us here. She was a well loved employee and friend to all who knew her." Her former co-workers at the Middle East Institute said that Swanson was also well liked there. "She was the absolute sweetest girl you could ever know," said Stephanie Richardson, deputy director of communications for the institute. "She was not just a good person to be around, but a fantastic addition to our group." Adam Mendelson, managing editor of the Middle East Journal, the department where Swanson interned, said: "Alice's intelligence and passion for learning was rivaled only by her great warmth and friendliness
I fell off my bike last night. HARD. I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary. I approached a corner, checked that there wasn't any traffic, and slowly made a right hand turn onto Montrose Ave. It was around 9pm, the weather and roads were fine, and I hadn't even been drinking. Next thing I know, my bicycle is flying out from under me into the middle of the street and i am smashing my hip, shoulder, and head onto the pavement. I hit my head so hard that I BROKE MY HELMET in two places. Friends, strangers, and simply anyone who rides rides a bike: PLEASE wear your helmet. I can't stress enough that no matter how careful you think you are or how well you think you can brace yourself for a fall, freak accidents happen and you could seriously hurt yourself. I don't want to think about the condition of my skull if that helmet was not there to take the blow. I was lucky and was able to walk away from the accident with only bruises and a sore helmet and I would have been on my way to the emergency room. Really, there's no excuse that I will accept for you not to protect yourself.
