Suspect in Fatal Florida Bicycle Accident May Have Been Driving While Impaired

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 18, 2012

Florida Highway Patrol troopers investigating a fatal hit-and-run bicycle accident in Avalon Park say that the 18-year-old man they arrested in connection with the accident was under the influence of synthetic marijuana when he struck and killed the 53-year-old victim. Troopers recently arrested the man on charges of fleeing the scene of a fatal accident, and he was booked into the Orange County Jail after submitting blood for testing at Florida Hospital. They say that the man was under the influence of drugs, possibly synthetic marijuana, when he struck and killed the bicyclist on Avalon Park Boulevard, near Tea Rose Drive.

Police Make Arrest in Fatal Florida Hit-and-Run Bicycle Accident

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 29, 2012

Police have made an arrest in a fatal hit-and-run bicycle accident in Orange County that killed a man recently. Police say that the victim was riding his bike on Albatross Street around 10 p.m. one recent evening and was trying to cross Park Avenue when he was struck by a Toyota Yaris. The impact threw him onto the street, where he was run over by a 2003 Infiniti SUV driven by an Apopka woman. Police report that the SUV dragged the victim’s body “a substantial distance” and that the victim died immediately after being struck by the SUV. The accident shocked James O. Cunningham and other Orlando bicycle accident attorneys due to the woman’s callousness. After striking the victim and dragging his body an unknown distance, witnesses say she stopped but did not get out of her car despite being told by three witnesses that she had hit the bicyclist.
