I came upon two separate bike accidents on the Rickenbacker Causeway this morning. Both cyclists did not appear to be seriously injured, and I don’t believe cars were involved in either accident. Both accidents occurred in the south bound bike lane/shoulder; the first accident occurred on the William Powel Bridge and the second one near Crandon Park.
Luckily no one was seriously injured, but the margin for error here is very small. With cars whizzing by at 45-55 mph someone could have easily been killed today.
A special thanks to Miami-Fire Rescue, MDPD and MPD.
