Nighttime bicyclist dies when hit by car
A man riding a bicycle was killed late Wednesday night when he crossed into the path of a car on Mariner Boulevard.
Curt Hudson, 54, was riding a bike east just before 11 p.m. on Portillo Road. At the intersection with Mariner Boulevard, he rode across the street and into the path of a 2010 Chevrolet Aveo that was headed north, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The bike was not equipped with a light, as required by state law when riding at night, troopers said.
The car slammed into Hudson, who was not wearing a helmet and was thrown to the ground. He died at the scene.
The car's driver, Nachelle Moss, 21, of Spring Hill, was not injured. Moss was not cited or charged.
