Memorial planned for bicyclist killed in hit-and-run while school mourns the loss of a teacher
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The Cincinnati Cycle Club, Queen City Bike and Mobo Bicycle Cooperative are planning a Ghost Bike in honor of Fredrick Carey.
Carey was killed in a hit-and-run accident while biking on Round Bottom Road near Beechwood in Union Township.
A Ghost Bike is a small memorial for bicyclists who are hit or killed on the street. A bike is painted all white and locked to a street sign near the crash site.
Carey was also a teacher at Cincinnati Country Day School in Indian Hill. Dr. Robert Macrae, Head of Cincinnati Country Day, released a statement on behalf of the community:
"The Country Day Community is shocked and saddened by the tragic loss of Fred Carey. Fred was a lifer at Country Day, graduating in 1980, and had been on the CCDS faculty since 1998. Fred served as the Dean of Students and was a very popular English teacher. He particularly enjoyed being the faculty advisor for the Outdoor Club and leading the Senior Project Program.
Country Day will have resources available to help students and faculty cope with this tragedy. We ask that the family and communitys privacy be respected during this most difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Freds family and friends."
