During the summer, Floridians are out and about enjoying the long days, beach trips and holiday weekends. Many residents, even tourists, head out on their bikes this time of year, whether it's to get to work or simply ride for fun. Sadly, bike rides can quickly turn tragic if the bicyclist is involved in a car accident.
Bikes are no match for motorized vehicles and this was evidenced recently when a Wellborn, Florida man was killed when a car hit his bike. The accident occurred during the morning hours when a female driver veered slightly off the side of the road and onto the shoulder. That's when her right front tire struck the 50-year-old bicyclist's back tire. The man was travelling along the edge of the road closest to the shoulder. The impact ejected the man off his bike and onto the hood of the woman's vehicle.
