Ghost Bike memorializes Wellesley cyclist
By bbrown | Published: November 11, 2012
A Ghost Bike has appeared at the Linden Street/Weston Road spot where Wellesley resident Alex Motsenigos was killed over the summer when hit by a truck. Thanks to a reader for passing along the photo.
Ghost Bikes have shown up around the Boston area in recent years, and unfortunately in recent months as well,
as a way to remember those cyclists who have been killed and to create
awareness for driver and cyclist safety. Learn more about the grassroots
Ghost Bikes here.
Wellesley police identified the driver of the truck involved in the accident but no charges have been filed, as the investigation continues.
