No justice in decision not to indict trucker in cyclist’s death

Something is terribly wrong with the grand jury decision not to indict the truck driver in the death of cyclist Alex Motsenigos (Metro, Feb. 5). I rode my bicycle to the Wellesley site of the accident the day after it occurred, and it was easy to see how the driver could have pulled Motsenigos under the truck. The site is a narrow and dangerous intersection. The video image of the truck overtaking the cyclist, as seen on WCVB television, clearly suggests the events that followed.

We need more vigorous efforts on the part of law and traffic authorities not only to prevent future such occurrences, but to prosecute those responsible when they happen.
