A 78-year-old bicyclist was listed in critical condition Thursday morning after being struck by a car at the corner of Belle Terre and Pine Lakes parkways, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Bertram Ralph, of Palm Coast, was traveling northbound on Belle Terre Parkway on the western sidewalk around 6:20 a.m.
Renee Kuprunas, 52, of Palm Coast, was traveling northbound on Belle Terre Parkway in the inside lane.
Ralph entered the crosswalk. Meanwhile, Kuprunas did not observe the cyclist and attempted a left turn onto Pine Lakes Parkway. The left front of Kuprunas’ 1995 Mercury Sable struck Ralph, who was ejected from the bike, according to the report.
Ralph, who was not wearing a helmet, was airlifted via FireFlight to Halifax Trauma Center.
The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending, according to the report.
