Fatal Bike Crash Under Investigation in Cambridge

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Cambridge Police Commissioner Christine Elow have confirmed an ongoing investigation into a fatal crash involving a box truck and cyclist that occurred at about 8:20 a.m. at the intersection of Hampshire Street and Portland Street.


The preliminary investigation suggests that both the truck and the bicycle were traveling in the same direction on Hampshire Street and the truck was turning right onto Portland Street at the time of the crash. The bicyclist, a 24-year-old Cambridge woman, was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital where she later died. The truck operator remained on scene.


This is an open and active investigation being conducted by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, the Cambridge Police Department and Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section.
