The number of people using bicycles to get around the city is on the rise. But, in the last five years, more than a dozen people were killed biking in Boston. Most recently, 38-year-old Anita Kurmann died in a collision with a truck in Boston’s Back Bay. The investigation into her death is ongoing.
