St. Petersburg bicyclist dies after colliding with car

ST. PETERSBURG — A 62-year-old St. Petersburg bicyclist died Friday, hours after he was struck by a car on 22nd Avenue S, police said.

William Butler was riding a bike on the sidewalk about 5 p.m. Friday when he veered into the intersection of 22nd Avenue and 28th Street. He was struck by a 2008 Dodge driven by Denise Dancil, 34, of St. Petersburg, police said.

Dancil told police she tried to brake when she saw Butler ride off the sidewalk, but struck the left side of Butler' bike.

Butler died later that night at Bayfront Medical Center.

The investigation is continuing.
