jasmine_herron

Earlier this month, Jasmine Herron was killed while cycling on Atlantic Avenue, after a driver opened her car door and knocked Herron into the path of a bus. She was 23 years old.

There will be a vigil ride for Herron this Saturday, the 25th, starting at 8:00 p.m. at the corner of Atlantic and Washington. The vigil organizers -- including the 77th Precinct Community Council, Brooklyn Community Board 8, the 77th Precinct Clergy Council, and Council Member Tish James -- are asking cyclists to come and ride in tribute to the victim.
