Below is a note from Rick with the Humboldt Bay Bicycle Commuters Association regarding the case of Greg Jennings, a bicycle commmuter who was struck and killed on 299 between Glendale and Blue Lake in August.

At September's Transit Camp Bay Area, I met Simon Ilyushchenko from Google, who was analyzing fatal U.S. collision data. He recently posted some of his findings and I thought I'd pass them along.
You can get everything from The Days are Numbered blog: Fatal US car collisions, 2005-2007. The Google Earth view (linked on the page) has separate layers that show pedestrian and bicycle accidents.
