Venice, FL (November 8, 2018) - One of four bicyclists involved in a deadly wreck in Venice on Tuesday, October 30th has been identified.
57-year-old William Harrison died on Tuesday, November 6th from injuries sustained in the crash. Previously, we reported on this story involving four bicyclists who were all struck by a car. The bicyclists were traveling on Center Road when an elderly woman struck all four of them, causing serious injuries. The crash occurred as the bicyclists attempted to make a lane change.
Authorities say that two of the other victims have now been released from the hospital while a third remains hospitalized. There is no update on that person's condition.
We are saddened to hear of the death of William Harrison in this tragic Venice bicycle accident.
In 2012, there were a total of 726 bicycle fatalities in the country. Of those, 112 of the fatal accidents occurred in Florida. In addition, several more people were injured. While bicycle riding can be a fun outdoor activity, it is not without dangers. Bicyclists face a great risk of death or serious bodily injury when they are involved in traffic collisions. Our thoughts for a speedy recovery go out to Edgardo Vazques.
