My life was forever changed when my husband, Jay, was killed in 2014, struck from behind while riding his bicycle by a then 89-year-old driver returning home at dusk in a rental car after visiting his wife in a nursing home. A volatile combination of circumstances.
On a well-lit major Chicago street the driver did not see the grown man on a large bicycle directly in front of him and, to this day, retains his license to drive.
