Traffic Backing Up After Van Strikes Bicyclist on Broadway
A bicyclist was struck by a van on Broadway a little before 2:15 p.m. today. Reporter Mark McKenna tells us one southbound lane is blocked as emergency personnel deal with the scene. Traffic is reportedly backed up to the Bayshore Mall.
The vehicle involved in the collision is a gold Chrysler Town and Country.
A witness said the bicyclist was riding the wrong way down the road when a van
backed pulled out of the animal hospital parking lot at that location and struck the cyclist. The driver reportedly dragged the cyclist under the van for a “small distance.”
“He was partway under vehicle when first responders arrived,” McKenna said.
