Ivan Morales is alive, and we are thankful

Ivan Morales was memorialized on Sunday's bike ride that wound its way through the five boroughs. The ride was the second annual event to bring attention to the cyclists killed each year at the hands of motor vehicles. Only one problem, Ivan Morales lived through his cycling crash. Not a problem at all, thankfully Ivan survived his ordeal of being hit by an off duty police officer who struck the Bronx resident with his SUV, a year ago.

check out the article in today's metro paper

The article mentions the issue that since Ivan is alive it makes it difficult for cycling advocay groups to keep accurate accounts of those killed by motor vehicles. Thats the issue? How about highlighting the fact that people can seriously mame and kill people with their SUV's and no charges or investigations are ever done?
