No word on whether the driver thought she was killing a ghost cyclist or not:

Des Moines 'ghost bike' memorial struck by car

"The memorial for a Des Moines cyclist was struck by a car Friday night, mangling the tires of an all-white "ghost bike."

Tire tracks were noticeable along the grass and sidewalk from where a vehicle looks like it went off the road and eventually struck the ghost bike.

Des Moines police received a call after 11 p.m. Friday for a car accident at the corner of 51st Street and Grand Avenue. An incident report shows an 18-year-old woman hit the ghost bike and needed medical attention.

She was transferred to Iowa Methodist Medical Center and had cuts on her neck, according to the report.

Police did not have a report indicating whether the driver Friday was intoxicated."
