Deputies seek help identifying cyclist injured in Dunedin

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office is seeking help from the public to identify a man who was seriously injured Monday night while riding a bicycle in Dunedin.

The man is white, in his late 50s or early 60s and weighs about 220 pounds, according to the Sheriff's Office. He has salt and pepper hair, sideburns and a mustache. He was wearing blue cargo shorts, a ring on his right hand and a silver metal-banded watch. He has no scars or tattoos. He was not carrying identification.

The man was cycling west on Causeway Boulevard in Dunedin Monday when he crashed sometime after 9:11 p.m., deputies said. A passerby saw him on the sidewalk on the west side of the drawbridge and called 911. An ambulance rushed the gravely injured man to a local hospital.

Drugs and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash, deputies said. The man may have had a medical event.

Anyone with information that could help identify the bicyclist may contact Deputy Todd Nellebach at (727) 582-6200.
