rest in peace

the first bike/car collision in SF this year to result in a death happened yesterday.

we at the blog have had a rather strange year as far as crazy senseless tragedies go, so my heart goes out to her friends, family, co-workers, and the bikey community in general.

she was biking so close to where i used to work...

a streetsblog commenter said something rather fitting and touching about this incident. the cyclist allegedly took an illegal left hand turn and that is when she collided with a truck.

The first word of Ho’s death came on Streetsblog last night, when a friend decided to respond to some critical comments:

“Some of you guys speak so heartlessly as if we deserve to die for any mistake we make. Well… my friend made a mistake and she passed away tonight at the hospital. Grow a heart.”

she was 25 years old. rest in peace.


  1. Hope family and friends find some comfort in good memories. At some point or another we all make a mistake, normally they are harmless, this time the cost was a young life. My condolences to all.

  2. I am so sorry to hear this terrible news.

  3. This is really sad, my condolences to her family.

  4. This is so sad, my condolences to her family!
