A woman is in the hospital after a three-wheeled vehicle struck four bicyclists in the westbound lanes of the MacArthur Causeway.
Miami Beach Police and Fire Rescue responded to the scene of the crash near Terminal Isle in Miami Beach just after 5:15 p.m., Monday.
Investigators said the victims were standing on the sidewalk and were not riding their bikes when they were struck by the vehicle.
Cameras captured a Vanderhall Blackjack and a section of a crosswalk post on the roadway, as well as one of the bicycles flat on its side.
Cameras also showed a man at the scene with a bandage on his right knee.
When asked what happened, the man replied, “The vehicle just cut me off.” When asked whether he then crashed, he said, “Yes.”
Paramedics transported the female victim to Ryder Trauma Center with a head injury. 7News cameras showed paramedics wheeling the victim into the hospital.
