According to the police, a 29-year-old man riding a bicycle was struck by an SUV on Beach Boulevard near Adventure Landing. Police said he failed to yield to the SUV.
A witness said she was thinking to herself “I’m watching someone get run over right now.” Just seconds before the crash, the witness said she almost hit another bicyclist.
The witness then reportedly said “I see somebody in black on a bicycle just dart out right in front of me, so I slammed on the breaks.” However fortunately she didn’t, but the driver behind her did. It was reported that the driver is cooperating, and they don’t believe alcohol was involved.
According to police, there have been four crashes at this intersection since 2014 – none included bicyclists, and none were serious. A spokesperson with the police department said he wouldn’t consider this a problem area.
It is was reported that Beach Boulevard received a D grade when it comes to traffic.
