A young lawyer who regularly rode her bike was killed when she was crushed by one of two trucks she was trying to pass in Park Slope. The Daily News says, Elizabeth Padilla, who lived on Berkeley Place, "attempted to pass a 10-wheel Edy's Ice Cream truck," when the driver of a parked P.C. Richards truck in Park Slope "opened his door"; "Padilla swerved to avoid the door but hit the side of the moving ice cream truck, causing her to topple under the vehicle's large rear wheels." The police didn't issues a summons to either driver. Reader Paul Maiorana sent us a photograph and added that the Edy's truck driver didn't stop, so a pedestrian ran down the truck to stop him. (Here's a link to the whole photograph; warning, it might be distressing.)
