ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Two bicycle crashes took place in two days, near the same intersection in St. Augustine.
Katie Kendall was working at a dry cleaners on the corner of U.S. 1 and Wildwood Drive last week. She could see emergency vehicles at the intersection, and then a customer told her what was happening.
"They said 'it looked like there's a bike crumpled up in the middle of the road, and I was just like, 'awful!' That's because I ride my bike here every day," Katie noted.
Thursday, a Florida Highway Patrol report said a cyclist tried to cross at the intersection but he had a red light. A car, which had a green light, hit the cyclist, the report stated.
One day later, just about 200 feet north of the same intersection at Deltona Boulevard, a trooper's report indicated a cyclist tried to cross U.S. 1 in the path of cars, and a car hit the cyclist.
