12-Year-Old Bicyclist Dies North Of Tampa

Sad to report. Another bicyclist in Florida is dead. This time, a 12-year-old Lutz boy north of Tampa.

Apparently, the authorities gave out the wrong information and the driver's age is 17 -- not 87, as initially reported.

ADD2: Another Hillsborough boy has been killed on a bicycle.

Interesting to learn more about this. The driver of the vehicle was 87. The close calls I have had have been with ederly drivers. The cyclists must make sure they really really see them. Driving westbound at 6:45 the sun and light could have been a factor. I have read other articles about not riding westbound at sunset. The drivers cannot see.

So tragic... and both by teenage drivers.
