22 year old Tracy Milillo was involved in a crash on Sept. 9th and passed away Sept 11. It seems that she was hit by a car, but details are still coming in. My thoughts go out to her family and I urge you all to be careful. Cyclist deaths are a rare occurrence, but all the more shocking and sad because of it. It is even more tragic that such a young person has been killed.
A 22-year-old bicyclist has died of head injuries from a crash in Coolidge Corner last week.
Police say Tracy Milillo, a recent Emmanuel College graduate from Holbrook, N.Y., died around 1:35 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 11. Millio never regained consciousness after the crash, police said.
Police are still investigating how the crash occurred. Though initial reports from witnesses indicated Milillo had been struck by a motorist, Capt. Michael Gropman said the vehicle may have never made contact with Milillo’s bike.
Police believe Milillo was near 30 Longwood Ave. when the crash occurred. She was not wearing a helmet, they said.
Gropman said police are examining the bicycle and vehicle for any mechanical defects. Forensic reports could come back as early as this week, Gropman said.
Police are asking anyone who may witnessed the accident, which occurred around 7:20 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 9, on Longwood Avenue, to contact the department.
