Bicyclist Killed On A1A In Fort Lauderdale

Comments Off

A man was struck and killed by a car on A1A in Fort Lauderdale, according to a police department news release.

Daniel Colotte, 59, was riding his bicycle north at the 1100 block of A1A when he was struck by a white Mercedes Benz that was also driving northbound on State Road A1A.

Colotte was taken to Broward General Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

O’Donnell is being investigated for driving while under the influence; charges are pending.

There is a bike lane where the accident occurred, but it’s a bit narrower at that part of A1A and tends to be more dangerous at night.
