Cyclist Bobby Cann was struck by a car in Old Town and killed while riding home from work last night. The motorist has cooperated with police. Cann recently rode in the Ride of Silence, which honors cyclists killed in car accidents. There will be a memorial at the accident site tonight from 4 to 6pm to honor him, and tomorrow night's Critical Mass may also swing by.
