'Dooring' Claims Bronx Cyclist
The Daily News describes the victim's life in the Bronx and her contributions to the community and also how the incident affected the motorist who allegedly 'doored' her.
"Megan Charlop, 57, director of community health at the Montefiore School Health Program, was married with four kids.
Charlop, a fitness fanatic who lived in the Bronx (and was raised in Great Neck, Long Island) for more than 30 years, rode her bike everywhere, friends said.
She regularly housed children from Africa and the Caribbean who came to the U.S. for treatment - and took neighborhood youngsters on trips to the Bronx Zoo and Botanical Garden to keep them out of trouble.
"The driver of the Toyota (who allegedly 'doored' her), Min Kyung Kwan, 66, got a summons for interfering with a bicyclist.
"He's not doing well," said Kwan's son. "It's like he closed his eyes, and when he opened them, it happened already. It's a tragedy for both families."
