The Star-Tribune reports…

“Everything was going her way as Kimberly Yeong Sil Hull, known to her family and friends as
Audrey, biked to her part-time job at the University of Minnesota’s Rarig Center Thursday morning.

A video she had created had just won first place in a university film contest, she was about to
graduate with a double major and she had a new boyfriend she really liked.

Suddenly, a dump truck that had been cruising beside her on 15th Avenue SE. turned right onto SE.
4th Street, knocking her onto the crosswalk and crushing her chest. She died at the scene.

It was one of the rare times Audrey wasn’t wearing her bike helmet, though even if she had been, it
wouldn’t have saved her life, her mother, Suzi Henrichs, said Saturday from Hull’s parents’ St. Paul
home.

Hull was frugal, generous and very creative, her parents said. “She could go into a used clothing
store, spend almost nothing and come out with a smashing outfit,” said Dr. Harry Hull, her father, a
former state epidemiologist.

She loved reading, recycling and cats, opposed commercialism and had a flair for designing her own
outfits. “She had a look of her own,” Henrichs said. “I will miss her fun and sense of humor.”

She attended an international school, with students of many ethnicities, for about 10 years when the
family was living in Geneva, Switzerland, her parents said. Audrey came to value people for who
they are, “not where they were born or what race they are,” Hull said.

Minneapolis police are urging caution among drivers, bikers and walkers after a week when 3 people died in car-pedestrian and car-bike crashes.
