Around 3:30 Wednesday afternoon, Rescue 32 and Engine 5 responded to Pinetrail Rd. off US 41 in the south county area for a bicycle vs truck accident.
When arrived on scene, we found a 60-year-old male cyclist with an injury to the back of his head. He was flown to Lee Memorial Hospital by Aeromed 5.
You never know when an accident will occur so when riding a bike, it is always the best practice to ride wearing a bike helmet.
