Bicycle accidents: Promising life cut short in Colorado

It is important to remember those who have passed away in a local community, especially the young ones who were not able to live out their lives to their full potential. One community in Colorado is doing just that by creating a memorial sign to remember a graduate student who was killed as he was walking across a street with his bicycle, close to the university he used to attend.
