Don’t do this, okay?
From The Orlando Sentinel:
Both the bus and bicycle rider were westbound on Orange, crossing Ridgewood, when the accident occurred. Witnesses told police the bicyclist passed the bus which then passed him before he collided with the right side of the bus. He was thrown from bicycle and was run over by the right rear wheel, Jimmie Flynt said.
Fred’s comment had me looking at the Daytona Beach New-Journal and here is what it said:
“He (the bus driver) didn’t see the man and the man didn’t see him,” Williams said between sobs, referring to the Votran bus driver and White. “I saw him (White) at the corner talking to a woman with a dog, just before he got hit.”
After he finished speaking to the woman, the 51-year-old White apparently continued riding west on Orange Avenue just before noon. Daytona Beach police spokesman Jimmie Flynt said the bus — driven by his brother Nate Flynt — also was heading west on Orange, after passing Ridgewood Avenue. There is a bus stop at the northwest corner of Ridgewood and Orange.
Based on a preliminary investigation, Nate Flynt, 57, was easing the bus into the bus stop. About the same time, White was riding alongside the bus, just in front of the right rear tire. White veered somewhat to the left to avoid hitting a curb and when he did so, he struck the side of the bus, was thrown from his bicycle and was caught under the right rear tire.
