In yet another bicycle tragedy, a cyclist was run over and killed some time around 8am today by a large dump truck at the intersections of West, Isabella, and San Pablo.

The identity of the cyclist and the driver of the truck are unknown. Police have blocked off San Pablo and side streets to through traffic while they continue to examine the scene at the time of this posting. Corporate media has begun to arrive.

Sadly, it was just two days ago when another cyclist was killed in Santa Cruz.

Not enough careful drivers. Too many ghost bikes.
