BLOOMINGDALE – A driver is dead and a bicyclist is in critical condition after a car overturned Saturday (April 3) in Bloomindale.

The driver died at the scene. Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies said the bicyclist, who was in critical condition, was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital.

The crash happened about 5:30 p.m. at the intersection of Nature’s Way Boulevard and Golf Meadow Boulevard in Bloomingdale in Hillsborough County.

Deputies said the driver of a 2018 Kia Stinger lost control of the car, hit a tree, then the cyclist. At some point during the crash, the car overturned.

“Our traffic homicide detectives are processing the scene and waiting for toxicology results that would reveal whether alcohol was a factor in this crash,” Hillsborough Sheriff Chad Chronister said. “At this point, we know the vehicle was driving over the speed limit. This is a tragic example of the importance of obeying traffic laws and making safety the top priority. Tonight, one person is dead and another is fighting for their life due to reckless driving.”

Anyone who witnessed the crash or has information that may be useful to the investigation is urged to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200.
