    I have no involvement with this incident; posting because I haven't seen much mention of it.

    Yes, every news report has prominently featured that he was not wearing a helmet.

    It also was part of the initial MoCo Police press release about the crash, unfortunately.

    And yet no mention of whether he was using lights or reflectors.

    Yes, a full body one made of high tensile steel.

    More evidence as to why we need something akin to a completed ICC trail. There are no good E-W routes in Eastern Montgomery County. Randolph Road, a very high stress and apparently deadly road, is the "best" current option.
