I was deeply saddened this morning to hear that the father of my bicycle friend Ed Collins was killed while biking this morning in Hyde Park just before 7 am. LeRoy Collins, Ed's dad, was 75 years old, a retired admiral and was the son of a former Florida governor.
The crash was at Brorein Street and Hyde Park Avenue. A man died and all the TBO story could offer is that the crash snarled traffic.
Ed is a big cyclist who lives in Seminole Heights and my condolences to Ed and his family.
The St. Pete Times offered this story.
And here's the TBO story.
