News - City - Another Ghost Bike - Portland Mercury: "Another Ghost Bike Collision Claims Second Biker in Two Weeks BY SCOTT MOORE With two cyclists dying in less than two weeks, in nearly identical ways, bike activists are turning the tragedies into a call to action. Tracey Sparling died on October 11 when she was run over by a cement mixer making a right turn, crushing her under its massive wheels. While the bike community was still mourning her death, cyclist Brett Jarolimek, a Bike Gallery employee and bike racer, was killed when he collided with a garbage truck that was turning right onto N Greeley in front of him. Both cyclists were apparently following the rules of the road."
