Bicycle accidents are not as common as other types of crashes. However, they are often more serious and deadly. Florida is home to many bicyclists who share the road with other motorists. A bicycle crash can cause devastating injuries and can even result in death. The lack of protection offered by a bicycle is the main reason why so many of these collisions are catastrophic in nature.
We would like to offer our condolences to the victim's family following this Sarasota bicycle accident.
