This accident occurred on a bike path, where the path crosses a road. The crossing has a "railroad track" style pedestrian crossing. I looked it up on Google maps, which now has "street view". I can't believe some of the comments. The crossing is not a blind curve, it has at least 800 to 1000 feet line of sight.
"A 7-year-old bicyclist was killed this afternoon when he was hit by a pickup while riding on a bike trail that crosses U.S. Highway 301 north of Stacy Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Rohan A. Berringer of Zephyrhills was riding with two other bicyclists – his mother and sister –when he rode into the path of a 2002 Ford F-150 about 2:11 p.m., according to investigators. The truck, driven by George D. Thomas, 79, of Thonotosassa, hit the boy, who died at the scene.
Neither Thomas nor his passenger, Mary J. Thomas, 75, also of Thonotosassa, was hurt.
The road was closed for more than two hours as the crash was being investigated.
The incident remains under investigation."
