A 38-year-old North Fort Myers man is hospitalized in critical condition this morning after being struck by a car while riding his bicycle on McGregor Boulevard in south Fort Myers.
About 2:15 a.m. Thursday, Walter Allen Leach's bicycle collided with the front of a 2000 Volkswagen Beetle driven by Brittany Lashea Cronin, 22, of Fort Myers. Cronin was traveling north on McGregor Boulevard in south Fort Myers and Leach was traveling north ahead of Cronin, according to Florida Highway Patrol reports.
Cronin continued forward and came to final rest in the northbound lane of McGregor. Leach was ejected and came to a final rest in the center left turn lane which divides north and southbound traffic on McGregor Boulevard, FHP reports.
Leach was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital. Neither Cronin, nor passenger, April Coralyn Dennis, 37, of Fort Myers, were injured in the crash.
