I just found out via Boda Boda that an ex-NYC messenger named Carl Hedrick was killed this morning by a hit and run driver in Charlotte, North Carolina. Carl used to come to the Peel Sessions last year and was always super chatty. My thoughts are with his family.
“Early this morning Carl Hedrick was riding his bike here in Charlotte, NC and was hit by a car that fled the scene. I’m posting here on FB for all his friends. For his NYC crew. Carl spoke highly of all of you and I feel like I know many of you and he was truly excited to be coming “home” next week. If you want to contact me, please friend me on FB. Once arrangements are made, I will post here as well.”
