PORT RICHEY — The young bicyclist who was hit by a car on U.S. 19 and critically injured Thursday afternoon has been released from the hospital, officials said.
Tyler Donohoe, 16, of New Port Richey, was treated and released from All Children's Hospital early Friday, a hospital official said. He was flown to Bayfront Medical Center and in critical condition after the crash Thursday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The crash happened about 4:30 p.m. A school bus stopped in the northbound lane of U.S. 19, a half-mile north of Jasmine Boulevard, and activated its fold-out stop signs, FHP said. With other lanes of traffic coming to a stop, Donohoe began crossing U.S. 19 going west.
A 1994 Ford Mustang failed to stop and collided with the bicyclist, FHP said. Donohoe was not wearing a helmet.
The driver of the Mustang was Daniel G. Holbrook, 57, of Port Richey, FHP said.
