How/Why:
Deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) are investigating a bicycle vs. vehicle crash in Seminole.

At approximately, 10:34 p.m. on Friday, June 21, 2013 the driver of a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica was traveling southbound on Park Street when a bicyclist road directly into the vehicle’s path. The bicyclist, identified as 27-year-old Joshua David Gaddy, was ejected from his bicycle and has been transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Gaddy was crossing mid-block, not in a crosswalk and did not have the right of way. His bicycle was not equipped with lights or reflectors.

The driver of the Chrysler, identified as 52-year-old John Patrick Campbell, was not injured.

It does appear that alcohol and/or controlled substances are a factor in the crash, as to the bicyclist but not the driver of the vehicle.

The investigation continues.

Comments are closed.
