ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Dozens of bike riders rode to the intersection of Washington Street and Indian School Road Saturday, where Matt Trujillo was hit by a car.
A ghost bike descanso was put up in honor of his memory.
In May, police said Memori Hardwick was high on methamphetamines, became distracted by a dropped lit cigarette and then ran a red light striking Trujillo.
Two weeks later he died.
“Matt had hundreds, thousands of friends throughout Albuquerque, he was well loved,” Joe Markz said. “He shared his passions with the city and state that he loved and I think this is just representative of all the lives that he touched.”
Hardwick pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide.
She remains in jail and is awaiting trial.
