Authorities reported a crash in which a cyclist was seriously injured and is now having to fight for her life after she was hit by a car in Broward County.
The crash happened when the female cyclist, 41 year old Myte Velasquez, was traveling west on South Post Road. She was heading toward Bonaventure Boulevard when she was hit by a white car.
Her Coach, Steve Mlujeak, says she is a very experienced cyclist and that there is a bike lane on that road. He was positive she would have been in the bike lane.
The woman was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital to be treated of several serious injuries by Weston Firefighters. The driver of the car remained at the scene of the crash.
Officials said the crash remains an active investigation. No other details were immediately released.

In our office, after an accident like this, we would typically assign or hire an investigator. This investigator would to go to the scene to try and collect evidence. They can canvass the area to see if any local business has security cameras that may have caught the accident within the angle of view of the security system. This should all be done as soon as possible after the accident to insure that the guilty driver takes responsibility for their actions.
