Driver Arrested In Collier County After Striking Bicyclist, Leaving Scene

A 56-year-old Boynton Beach man was arrested in Collier County after he struck a bicyclist and didn’t stop, troopers say.

Florida Highway Patrol said Michael Moncada, 56, was heading west on Davis Boulevard, attempting to enter a plaza when his SUV collided with the 46-year-old male cyclist from Naples. The crash happened just before midnight.

Authorities said the cyclist was thrown from his bike and taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Moncada continued into the plaza, exited his vehicle, and entered his room at the Red Roof Inn.

His vehicle was impounded and he was arrested for leaving the scene of a crash involving serious injuries. He has since been released from jail.
