Pasco bicyclist badly hurt after crashing into parked truck

TRINITY — A 65-year-old bicyclist was seriously injured Wednesday afternoon after crashing into a parked truck inside the Heritage Village gated community, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Frederic P. Ratner, who lives in the gated community, was riding a Trek bicycle on Robert Trent Jones Parkway near Fallowfield Drive, a report stated, when he crashed into the back of the unoccupied Ford just before 3 p.m. Ratner was going at a normal speed and fell to the asphalt, the report said. He suffered serious injuries and was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, troopers said.

The truck's driver, Kyle Houghton, 32, of Port Richey, was doing maintenance on the vehicle and had parked it partly on the road, troopers said. No one else was hurt, and no charges were filed.
