Ghost bike at Fairfax crash site

According to DC Indymedia a white ghost bike has appeared at the site of the fatal bike crash at the corner of Forum Dr and Lee Hwy/Rt 29 just south of the Fairfax County Government Center, where 18-year old Abdelouahid "Abdul" Chadli was killed. A ghost bike "is a bicycle set up in a place where a cyclist has been hurt or killed by a motor vehicle, as a roadside memorial."

Several items have already been placed at the site as you can see in the background of the photo. When I stopped by there on Tuesday a small crowd was gathered and we've heard there have been people visiting the site daily.

On Sunday members of the Fairfax High School wrestling team gathered at the site to mourn Chadli's death.
