MANATEE — A 41-year-old man from White Plains, N.Y., was killed in a bike accident Tuesday afternoon, Florida Highway Patrol reports.
The accident occurred at about 3:15 p.m. at U.S. 19, just north of Palmview Road when Daniel Cabot rode onto the roadway while crossing U.S. 19 into the direct path of an oncoming vehicle, according to the FHP.
The 22-year-old driver attempted to avoid a crash but struck the front of the bike, causing Cabot to be thrown onto the windshield of the car, FHP said. He landed in a grass median.
He was later pronounced dead. No charges will be filed, according to FHP.
