The bicyclist who died Jan. 24 in a collision with a car has been identified as Guo Zhen, 74, of Boston.
The South End resident was only a few blocks from his Village Court apartment when he was struck by a car at the corner of Tremont and Arlington Streets at about 8:10 a.m. that Monday.
A relative who answered the phone at Zhen's residence but did not wish to be identified said that he biked around the neighborhood every morning. He was a native of China, the relative said.
The white sedan involved in the accident seemed to have been turning east onto Herald Street when it collided with the bike, authorities said, and solar glare may have blocked the driver's vision.
Zhen was pronounced dead at Boston Medical Center. It was the city's third fatal bike accident in the past two years.
