MIAMI – A driver injured a bicyclist before crashing into the window of a car dealership on Tuesday in Miami prompting police officers to temporarily close Biscayne Boulevard.
The driver, who was traveling southbound on Biscayne Boulevard, suffered a “medical emergency” before the crash and the bicyclist suffered a head injury during the crash, according to Miami Fire Rescue personnel.
The driver, identified as a 70-year-old man, also collided with other vehicles before reverse-crashing into Braman Miami at 2060 Biscayne Blvd., according to the Miami Police Department.
“The gentleman who sits right next to the window where the vehicle went in was actually off today,” Fire Rescue Lt. Pete Sanchez said.
Police officers temporarily closed Biscayne Boulevard’s southbound and northbound lanes at 21 Street and reopened the area by 12 p.m. The driver remained at the scene of the crash.
