Ghost Bike Matt Trujillo_148595

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A ghost bike honoring a bicyclist has been stolen again.

The bike at Washington and Indian School was put there in 2011 after 36-year-old Matt Trujillo was hit by a woman who was driving while high on meth.

Police believe the ghost bike was taken earlier this month.

It’s not the first time–a homeless man was seen riding a bike while carrying Trujillo’s prior ghost bike. That ghost bike was eventually returned to its spot.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that friends and family are now working with High Desert Bicycles to get Trujillo’s ghost bike replaced.
