Cyclist Dies in Brevard County Collision

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on June 30, 2020

An investigation is underway within Brevard County to discover exactly what happened to cause a car to fatally strike a cyclist on the morning of Friday, June 26th. Reports from the Florida Highway Patrol within Brevard County indicated that the accident happened sometime around 8:00 a.m. More information is forthcoming from the FHP, but at the time of this writing there remain many unanswered questions.

The incident took place at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Main Street. It is not exactly clear which city or town within Brevard County this happened, and it is not known if the area features any sort of bike lane or other safety features for individuals who are either riding bikes or walking. It is the fact that many counties throughout the state have received wide criticism for their lack of bike or pedestrian safety features. At the time of this writing, it is not clear if this fatal incident was the result of the lack of such features or if perhaps some other factor resulted in the fatal accident.

We do not know if the car struck the cyclist first or if the cyclist somehow hit the car. In cases such as this, it is not uncommon for the driver of the car to not even notice the cyclist until it is too late, although this absolutely doesn’t mean that the driver was definitely at fault. That remains to be seen in the outcome of any investigation into the incident. What is clear is that the cyclist suffered from fatal injuries as a result of the crash. They were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident by paramedics.

The reports did not offer any information as to the possibility of witnesses to the incident, but it does seem that the driver of the car remained at the scene following the crash. It is possible that the car’s driver is the only remaining individual to have seen the crash first hand, although nothing in the reports suggests that this is verifiably the case.

While the FHP conducted an initial investigation into the accident, all of the northern lanes of U.S. 1 remained closed. It is not clear how long these lanes were closed before the preliminary investigation was concluded.
