In our last post we discussed a San Francisco bicycle accident which left a 21-year-old cyclist dead. This is the second recent accident to involve Recology garbage truck.
A 21-year-old Clayton man was recently killed in a Mission District bicycle accident. Authorities say that the man was biking shortly before 7 a.m. yesterday morning when he was run over by a Recology garbage truck driving in the same direction.
The truck reportedly began making a turn from 16th Street onto South Van Ness. The abrupt turn caused the cyclist to run into the back of the truck.

This week’s question comes from Jenny V. in Berkeley who asks, “My best girlfriend just confided in me that she and her therapist had sex. She went to see this therapist because of sexual trauma she suffered as a child. She’s really freaked out and confused. On one hand she doesn’t want to get the therapist in trouble but on the other hand she feels like she’s being taken advantage of. I can see that it’s tearing her apart. Isn’t this illegal? What can be done about it?”
