Details have been released about the traffic incident that resulted in the death of a bicyclist who was airlifted to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
According to the Tampa Police Department (TPD), at around 12:30 p.m. on September 10, an automobile struck 67-year-old Albert Dyson, of Lutz, at the intersection of Bruce B. Downs (BBD) Blvd. and I-75 between Commerce Palms Blvd. and the I-75 entrance ramp.
The report says that the bicyclist was crossing “mid-block.” The driver, 23-year-old Stephanie Miller of St. Petersburg, applied her brakes to avoid the man, but could not avoid the collision. TPD says that it doesn’t appear as though Miller was at fault.
TPD says that the man was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital (TGH) with life-threatening injuries, but died after several hours in the hospital.
