Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — A “ghost bike” has been placed at the site where Nathan Crowson was run over and killed on Perkins Road.
Ghost bikes are memorials for cyclists who are hit or killed in the street. The bike is painted white as a reminder of the tragedy that took place.
The first ghost bikes were created in St. Louis in 2003.
Cyclists throughout the Capitol Area say they'll be riding Friday to remember victim Nathan Crowson and to honor Danny Morris.
It's an event called Critical Mass that's held on the last Friday of every month.
The event is designed to bring attention to the way cyclists are treated by drivers.
This Friday, the group will be meeting at the clock tower at LSU at 5:30 p.m. and will ride at 6:00 p.m.
