Bradenton, FL (November 7, 2022) – A man is in critical condition after a serious bicycle accident on Friday night in Bradenton. On October 4, the man was struck by a vehicle on US 41 and seriously injured. 

The incident occurred when the man, age 27, was riding his bike south of 50th Avenue Plaza West on US 41. As the cyclist was riding, a 53-year-old Bradenton man was traveling north in a Sport Utility Vehicle approaching the intersection with 50th Avenue Plaza West. 

At approximately 9:17 p.m., the bicyclist entered US 41 and headed west in order to cross the road when he was hit by the SUV. The front end of the SUV collided with the left side of the bicyclist, throwing him off his bike, and causing critical injuries. 

First responders arrived a short time later and transported the injured victim to a local hospital for treatment. His name has not been released at this time. 

The SUV’s driver sustained no injuries in the accident. The Florida Highway Patrol stated that the accident remains under local law enforcement investigation at this time. 

We hope for the full recovery of the injured victim.
