Camille Savoy, 54, struck by a motorist on Sunday, November 9, has died.
He died at approximately 6 pm tonight, at the Hackensack Medical University Hospital, in Bergen County, NJ, said his friend Van Gothner.
"His injuries were just too great," said Gothner, referring primarily to severe damage to Savoy's brain.
Savoy was not responding to treatment and he did not recover from the serious blows he sustained from the accident.
His family will inform the cycling community about arrangements for his bereavement.
For some, this might be a Thanksgiving that they will never forget. After the accident two weeks ago so many cyclists traveling on 9W have said they feel very nervous, and unsafe--riding on the road where they say cars speed routinely, or turn in front of them, or cut them off with impunity. Now, with Savoy's death, they may feel even more unsafe.
Benepes Bike Blog will be organizing a ride from the George Washington Bridge that commemorates his life, leaving at 9 am and arriving at 10 am at the spot where he was hit, either this Sunday, November 30, or the following weekend.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can assist in the organization of this ride.
