ST. PETERSBURG – A bicyclist is in critical condition after a car hit him when he ran a red light Tuesday (Sept. 19), the St. Petersburg Police Department said.
The bicyclist’s name was being withheld until his next of kin are notified. He was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg in critical condition. The car’s driver was not injured. Police said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
The crash happened about 12:30 a.m. at 62nd Avenue N and 16th Street. Police said the bicyclist was crossing 62nd Avenue when he rode into the path of a 2004 Cadillac driven by Stephanie
Nichole Brown, 26, of St. Petersburg, who was westbound on 62nd Avenue.
Police said the Cadillac had a green light and the bicyclist was crossing against a red light. The Cadillac hit the bicycle, which sent the bicyclist into the windshield and over the roof of the car. The Cadillac came to rest shortly after the intersection. The bicyclist, who had not been wearing a helmet, landed on the pavement, officers said.
