Troopers release name of 29-year-old Dade City bicyclist killed in collision

DADE CITY — Authorities identified the bicyclist who was killed Saturday night after being hit by two cars as 29-year-old James C. Allbritton of Dade City.

Allbritton was riding south on State Road 35, near Wilds Road, when he was struck by Heather Belasic, 25, who was also driving south, state troopers said.

The impact with Belasic's 2008 Mazda knocked Allbritton into the northbound lanes of the roadway, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

That's where he was run over by the second car, a 2001 Nissan Sentra driven by Lonnie Wilson, 25, officials said.

Allbritton was pronounced dead at the scene just before 11 p.m.

Troopers said Allbritton was wearing dark jeans and a black T-shirt with no lights on his bicycle.

Neither Belasic nor Wilson were injured in the collision.

An investigation is ongoing.
