Was Leyla related to Gary Beban, one of the most famous Redwood City residents? Our prayers go out for her and her family.

My deepest condolences to Leyla's family in this dark hour.
Rest in Peace Little One.

Words cannot express how sad this accident makes me feel. The county supervisors need to make it safe for our children (and adults) to ride bikes whenever they need or want to. They have had the opportunity and they rejected it in my community. Hopefully, that will never happen again.
