61-Year-Old Man Dead in Bradenton Bicycle Accident

A 61-year-old man from Bradenton died from injuries sustained when he was struck by a vehicle while riding his bicycle.

The accident occurred on the morning of Saturday, May 16. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, it happened at approximately 10 a.m. at the intersection of 61st Street East and U.S. 19 in Palmetto.

Police say the bicyclist was stopped in the westbound section of 61st Street East at the intersection, which is controlled with a stop sign. Meanwhile, a 48-year-old man from Bradenton was heading north on U.S. 19 approaching the intersection. The bicyclist allegedly traveled into the path of the vehicle, resulting in the accident. He was not wearing a helmet.

Police continued to investigate the accident in its aftermath.

Right of way rules apply to all on the road

Anyone on the road, whether they are in a motor vehicle or on a bicycle, is required to follow the rules of the road regarding right-of-way. Bicyclists have the same rules to follow as drivers of motor vehicles with regard to who gets to proceed first at a controlled intersection. When multiple vehicles are stopped, they proceed through the intersection in the order in which they arrived. If a pair of vehicles arrived at the same time, the one on the right will proceed through the intersection first.

In addition, it is crucial for all drivers to pay attention to their surroundings and make sure the way is clear before proceeding through an intersection.
