At around 7p.m. on Friday, October 26th a crash occurred between a bicyclist and a U.S. Postal Service truck.
The extent of the bicyclist’s injuries are unknown at this time. One eyewitness states that the bicyclist was riding without lights at dusk and the mail truck did not see her and that the mail truck executed a U-turn and collided with the bicyclist who may have been attempting to pass.

Amber’s most unusual project involved hitchhiking on small airplanes to 49 states, during which time she spent two years on the road, or rather, “on the skyways.” She is currently working on a book that documents the unusual journey and provides insight into the aviation community. Before getting into travel writing, Amber worked for an activist, investigative newspaper in London, so joining forces with the Blue Paper allows her to go back to her muckraking roots.
