Man from Indiantown Killed in Crash While on Bicycle

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on May 2, 2017

The Florida Highway Patrol has released the currently available details about the death of a 55-year-old man from Indiantown who died on Sunday night after being hit by a car. According to the report, the man, Phain Cecil Davis, was on his bicycle and riding down Southwest Farm Road. This road, a two lane road used for local traffic, is usually not very busy, although it is not clear whether or not there is an adequate amount of light covering the street at all times.

This incident, which took place close to 9:00 in the evening, happened when Davis, for reasons that are not yet clear, swerved directly in front of a 2013 Kia Optima. The Optima was being driven by the 25-year-old Jimenez Juan DeJuan, also from Indiantown. DeJuan was unable to avoid colliding with the bicyclist, and the two vehicles wound up colliding with one another.

DeJuan was still at the scene when the emergency response vehicles arrived. Davis was immediately rushed to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center, a medical facility in Fort Pierce. Unfortunately, when he arrived, the doctors there could do nothing for him. Davis was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly after being admitted.

At this time, there are no clear or formal charges that have been brought before anyone regarding this incident. It is not even known whether or not DeJuan was initially arrested as a result of the crash. That he stayed around for the police to arrive speaks volumes about his character (as anyone who has read any other pieces on this blog can attest, many individuals who are involved in a crash with a cyclist or pedestrian flee the scene of the incident rather than stick around; this means that when the police finally do find them, the fleeing individual is immediately facing serious charges).

The crash that took place off Southwest Farm Road is still under investigation, and the authorities are particularly looking into whether or not any alcohol contributed in any way to the circumstances that lead to the death of Phaion Cecil Davis. Updates will be released as more information is compiled.
