A bicyclist is injured after a car accident he wasn’t even involved in.
65-year-old Julian Conley was simply riding a bicycle on East Lake Road and Ridgemoor Boulevard in the East Lake area of Pinellas County. Moments later, Julian Conley was riding in a helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 66-year-old John Carr was southbound on East Lake in a 2007 Nissan when he turned in front of a 2008 Volkswagen driven by Karen Procaro who was headed north. The two vehicles collided causing a car accident. The impact from the car accident forced Carr’s vehicle into Julian Conley and then hit a concrete pole.
One may never think riding a bicycle could result in being part of a car accident and resulting in serious injuries; but it happens. Drivers need to be watchful for other drivers AND be watchful for bicyclists. A driver’s negligent actions can forever impact a bicyclist’s life.
