A 13-year-old bicyclist is in critical condition after a traffic crash today in Pasco County, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
According to a report, about 11 a.m. an F-250 pickup truck driven by James Conrad Doring, 17, of Hudson was headed south on U.S. Highway 19 near Ranch Road. Meanwhile, a bicycle ridden by Robert Munson of Port Richey was traveling west on Ranch Road with a group of other bicyclists.
Munson tried to cross Highway 19 to get to Hammock Road under a red light, traveling into the path of the Ford. Doring was unable to avoid colliding with the bicycle, the patrol said.
Munson is in critical but stable condition at Bayfront Medical Center.
