That's very sad.
I looked at google streetview of where the accident happened and it seems it's a large road with no bike lane. I don't know how popular bicycles are in the US (or more specifically in that city) but given how wide the roads are I would expect that town planners dedicate some space to a separate bike lane.
I wouldn't feel safe biking on that road from how it looks on streetview, especially not after dark.

A sad tragedy.
I didn't know him, but I am sure his creation will endure for many many years.

R.I.P.
