Another bicycle accident has taken place in Tallahassee.

Just before 9:00 p.m. Thursday, a car hit a bicyclist on the corner of Blairstone and Apalachee Parkway. The man on the bicycle has serious head injuries and was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

The bicyclist was going westbound on Apalachee Parkway while the car was headed southbound on Blairstone. TPD says the bicyclist had a red light, but crossed anyway while the car was turning left on a green arrow.

The identity of the bicyclist is being withheld until family is notified. Officers are still investigating, but charges are not pending against the driver.

    I was coming back from Wal Mart and saw this accident just after it happened! Cops were still arriving at the scene as we crossed the intersection. Judging by the look of the front of the truck he hit the guy pretty hard! At first I thought it was a motorcycle! It's so Sad!!! I hope he recovers!

    i've been told by many on this website that an accident means that the person did not meat to do something. so you are telling me that the bike rider did't mean to run that red light?? yea right, i see it all the time.

    Bike riders should be required to take a class and get a license like any other mode of transportaion. So many are just plain stupid how they ride.

    Did you mean the bicyclist was not wearing a helmet? I've not seen many bicycles with seat belts. I passed through the area about half an hour after the incident. The bicycle was a twisted wreck, and I couldn't see how anyone could have survived. I hope he pulls through.
