W..t..f.  I am a frequent pedestrian, so I have witnessed and been on the receiving end of all manner of stupidity from dicks in cars.  Usually it is stuff like laying on the horn or yelling right as they speed to try to jump-scare you.  Sometimes it's more aggressive with a fake swerve into the shoulder of the road.  But never have I seen someone actually try to make contact.  Thats just straight up evil.

Just falling off your bike isn't usually fatal even going fast - just painful.  I wonder if she was unlucky and hit her head or something.

CSB which I think comes from Billy Connolly biography

Had a mate in Glasgow who used to drove round with a boxing glove on a long pole, with BIFF! painted on glove. He'd drive up alongside cyclists, stick pole out window, yell "Hey!" and then shove the glove at them

CSB?  I don't think so, and I hate cyclists at what I believe is the maximum allowable amount.  That is, I will curse at them under my breath for causing me to jam on the brakes.  Then I realize they've inconvenienced me for only a few seconds and get the fark over myself.

What Billy Connolly or his mate did could have very easily turned into an incident like this.

Federal murder charges will likely have to suffice.  At least I think that applies here.

Federal?  What federal statute did they break?

State?  For sure.  And I would think it could get a murder charge of sorts.  A driver of a robbery gone wrong can get charged with murder even if they dodn't do the act, you'd think using the vehicle as the platform for the assault that caused a person's death would be in the same boat.

I'm an infrequent pedestrian, but when I am, I'm usually being my insomniac self and walking my dog while listening to a podcast.

People are usually nice. But about a year ago my late 30s, 5'3" ass girl, walking my dog at 2am had two teenage boys chuck a convenience store carrot cake at us while going about 50 in a residential zone. And yelling at me "biatch ass, n*bong!" and laughing.

I did all I could do, which was yell fark you and flip them off. I think what bothers me most is that these were two white teenage boys reveling in their racism, sexism, and being able to use a vehicle to abuse randos without consequence because they're white boys.

My guess is that she had no idea and therefore didn't even have time for instinct to kick in.  When I lose my balance, my arms fling outward, and if I'm balanced my body will try to correct.  Someone balance on a bike is looking for and will see an obstruction and adjust for it, but a vehicle approaching from the rear and someone leaning out is not easily seen or prepared for.  I hope the moment of unholy glee at the biker's suffering was worth of a life, because that was the price of the glee.  And because there are two dead people, the driver gets to hopefully spend a long time in a cell with no hope of freedom ever again.

The noise as his face smashed in to the rear quarter - *THUNK* - was extremely satisfying.  It's just a shame that the car with the rest of the dickheads in it didn't immediately plunge into a sinkhole and explode.

It's a shame they can't get the driver on two counts of felony murder, as the crime doesn't fall under one of the ten crimes that would allow for that charge.

We had a grand fondo out our way in the sticks last year. While the locals biatched loudly at the local store, the cyclists told us drivers were still very respectful and careful on the road.

Yeah, it may not be our thing, but show some damn respect for people's lives.

A lifetime career bicycle dealer told me his job makes him sad because he knows some of his customers will not wear a helmet and will end up disabled or dead.

I ride on country roads with no helmet and will get cut up by the broken glass whiskey bottles discarded by my white trash neighbors.

Was it a woman with 3 kids at home, riding her bike to work so she can save money on gas, and afford formula for the baby on her way home?  And why do I want to know that?

To set up a fund and help her family with funeral expenses.
To con people out of money, pretending to do the same.
To release vengeance fantasies.
To pray for those affected by this.

Unfortunately for me, it would be to release vengeance fantasies, (then channel that into prayer and meditation as I try to be a better person).  In a way I am grateful the article didn't go into the victim's situation.  But she probably deserves to have more said about her than this.

Let's not forget the driver was also on parole, plus gets hit with fleeing the scene of a crime on top of the murder charges... he won't be free for a long time and with hair like that I'm pretty sure he won't have a fun time in prison.

What they did to the bicyclist was predetermined and resulted in her death from a criminal act, that should be felony murder and he should get at least manslaughter for his friend.
