Bicyclists struck by pickup truck in Key Biscayne

KEY BISCAYNE, FLA. (WSVN) - Several bicyclists were hurt in Key Biscayne, Wednesday, after they were hit by a pickup truck.

SkyForce flew over the scene, at 3701 Rickenbacker Causeway, where at least two bicyclists were seen sitting on the side of the private road. Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue were seen speaking to the two bicyclists and another rider who was standing with them.

One of the cyclists told police that he dropped his cellphone and tried to pick it up, which is when the crash happened. “We just got rear-ended by a truck,” said victim Bernie Perez. “We were just riding our bikes, and this car came from behind and just threw us away.”

Police said the cyclists are in stable condition.

The pickup truck that struck the bicyclists remained on the scene.

Traffic was not delayed in the area as a result of the crash.
