Stuart police’s criminal investigations division is investigating the case, the police lieutenant said, which is standard procedure.
Gerwan declined to comment on the nature of the case, such as whether it was a hit-and-run or if toxicology tests were done for the vehicle driver.
Bicyclist Deaths and Crashes: This fatal crash happened a day after a crash in St. Lucie County that left a 57-year-old bicyclist severely injured with no brain activity. In that case, the driver of the Toyota Tundra pickup did not stop, FHP investigators said. They said they believe they found the truck involved, but no arrests have been made.
