She said she was driving home westward on Grand in the extreme right path and holding up at the red light, and the bicycle rider was to one side, however, he was in the road, not on the walkway.
The 26-year-old male observer said he was driving west on Grand to get his better half from work and was in the path to one side of the subsequent female observer holding up at the red when the occurrence happened.
Like the primary female observer, he said the cyclist was on the walkway, and like the second observer, he said the man had on a cap and had a blazing fog light, adding that the man, who was Black, was wearing bicycle clothing and had all the earmarks of being on a costly cycle.
