Vigil held for bicyclist killed in Porter Square

CAMBRIDGE (WHDH) - More than a hundred people showed up to Porter Square to pay respect to a bicyclist killed last week.

Bernard Lavins, 60, of Lexington was the bicyclist who was fatally struck by a tractor-trailer in Porter Square on Oct. 5.

Those who attended adorned candles and flowers around a white bicycle in the area, and called for change in bike safety.

Those living in the area say Porter Square is a notoriously dangerous intersection for bikers and pedestrians.
