Just yesterday we examined Maryland's deficiencies in the realm of pedestrian and bicyclist safety ( see http://www.maryland-law.com/library/maryland-pedestrian-safety-an-oxymoron.cfm ).

Today we learn from the Washington Post that on Saturday November 7th, 2009 a local bicyclist was struck and killed in Bladensburg by a Bladensburg police officer.

Reportedly, the cyclist was emerging from Bladen Plaza shopping center onto Annapolis Road when he was struck by a Bladensburg Police vehicle operated by Officer Alex Salinas.

The cyclist was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
