    Is that a CaBi in the second photo?

    Yes, it looks like the victim was riding a CaBi.

    At about 7:30 p.m. Friday, the bicyclist and a Kia were traveling west on Massachusetts Avenue NW near the intersection with Second Street NW. A Honda that was also westbound struck the rear of the car and the bicyclist simultaneously, police said. Both the Kia and Honda then drove into the intersection and struck two other cars that were northbound.

    Three motorists, including the driver of the Honda, were taken to a hospital for minor injuries, police said. The bicyclist was taken to a hospital and died there from injuries sustained in the crash.

    Police on Saturday they would identify the bicyclist after the personís family had been notified.

    Sometimes, when you hear of a cyclist death, the location is a surprise -- but more often not at all a surprise. This one is the latter. That area is one of the more dangerous in DC to be navigating things on a bicycle. RIP.

    FYI - location of Thursday's ghost bike installation/memorial has shifted to the other side of the block at the NW corner of New Jersey and Mass NW. After the installation, there will be a memorial ride to the Wilson Building (14th and Pennsylvania NW) for a moment of silence.

    For those who can't attend in person, it looks like there'll also be a livestream (on Facebook?) - details to follow in the FB link above.

    As a reminder: the ghost bike installation and memorial bike ride for Jim Pagels will be tonight at 6PM. We will gather at the NW corner of New Jersey and Massachusetts NW, and the memorial ride will take us to the Wilson Building (near 14th and Pennsylvania NW).

    For those unable to make it, it will be livestreamed on both Facebook (see the link above) and on Twitter (https://twitter.com/MarkSussman_/sta...94818274787329).

    Details are included in the Facebook announcement.
