NAPLES — UPDATE
A Naples woman was in serious condition after being struck by a Collier County Sheriff's Office patrol car in East Naples, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
The incident occurred about 10:15 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Collier Boulevard and Pasedo Drive.
According to FHP reports, Cicelia McKinnon, 47, of Naples was eastbound in the median of Collier Boulevard at the intersection of Pasedo Drive and walking her bicycle across the road.
A Collier County Sheriff’s 2008 Ford Crown Victoria squad car being driven by Corp. Brian Williams was northbound in the outside lane of Collier Boulevard.
Reports said McKinnon entered into the path of Williams’ squad car. Williams, the report said, didn't see McKinnon until just prior to impact.
The front of the patrol car struck the right side of McKinnon and the bicycle and McKinnon was thrown onto the hood of the car, according to the report. As Williams stopped the squad car, McKinnon was thrown off the hood before coming to a final rest in the outside lane of Collier Boulevard.
Lee County Medstar responded to the crash and transported McKinnon to Lee Memorial Hospital. Additional information on McKinnon and her condition were unavailable Wednesday night.
Because the crash involved a sheriff's deputy's patrol car, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Karie Partington said the Florida Highway Patrol did the investigation.
Charges are pending in the case.
