A cyclist was critically injured just before 6 a.m. Tuesday when a motor vehicle struck him at U.S. 1 and SW 17th Avenue. His Bianchi fixed-gear bike was thrown 150 feet from the point of impact. That's about where the southbound driver stopped, too. The cyclist was not wearing a helmet. He was taken to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Thanks to Lee Marks for the report.
Rydel identifies the rider as Michael Lum. Eddy has a photo of Michael on Facebook.
