Cycling Accident Victim Heads up Biking Advocacy Group in Lafayette

Monique Koll was recently appointed BikeLaFayette's executive director, a feat that may have seemed impossible following the broken neck she suffered when an unlicensed driver struck her while she rode her bike in Duson, Louisiana.

BikeLaFayette is a bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organization that promotes bicycle safety, awareness and education. Their mission is to create a more bicycle and pedestrian-friendly community. Koll intends to create advocacy training for members as well as attend government hearings on anything concerning pedestrians and cyclists.

Although Koll has not been able to ride a bike since her accident, she continues to advocate for bicycle and pedestrian safety to ensure that what happened to her does not happen to anyone else.

Koll's appointment as executive director came just one day after another bicycle rider was fatally injured in Breaux Bridge. Tyrone Celestine, 28, was hit by an intoxicated driver around 11:30 p.m. on West Mills Avenue near Rees Street. Celestine was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. The intoxicated driver was charged on various counts, including vehicular homicide.
