WINTER GARDEN, FL – Police in Winter Garden are investigating an accident that claimed the life of a bicyclist last week.
According to WKMG, the victim was riding a bicycle Thursday morning in the area of 9th Street and Smith Street when he was hit by a car at about 5:49 a.m. Following the initial accident, the man was run over by several other vehicles. He was pronounced dead at an area hospital.
Investigators say some of the vehicles involved did not remain at the scene. Police believe that because the victim was wearing black clothing while riding a black bike with no lights in the early morning hours, that some of the drivers may not have realized they struck him.
Anyone with information about the incident was asked to contact Winter Garden Police.
