Visibility at issue in fatal crash with cyclist

The driver of a large truck that fatally struck an MIT scientist probably did not even see the 36-year-old when the vehicle collided with her bike near Kenmore Square Sunday afternoon, even though his truck dragged the bike for 75 feet, law enforcement officials said.

The driver, who has not been charged and whose name has not been released, kept driving after he hit Kanako ­Miura Sunday at Charlesgate West and Beacon Street, a confusing, busy intersection that funnels fast-moving traffic to Fenway and Storrow Drive and has been described by police as one of the most dangerous parts of the city for cyclists.
