Bike Rider Hurt After Colliding with Car in Hosford Saturday

The Fran Haasch Law Group

A 21-year-old Hosford resident was taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital by emergency helicopter after his bicycle collided with a car Saturday afternoon.

Marvin M. Staton was riding south on Shuler Street around 5:27 p.m. when he failed to heed a stop sign at a four-way intersection and rode into the path of a westbound car on Roberts Street, according to FHP Trooper Jason King. The bike rider was struck by the right front of a 1996 Mercury Cougar driven by Steve Allen Kirkpatrick of Hosford. Staton was ejected from the bike, thrown onto the windshield and then fell to the ground at the northeast corner of the intersection. Emergency workers arrived at the scene to find Stanton unresponsive and he was transported to the landing zone by ambulance after reportedly suffering incapacitating injuries. “He was cut, bleeding and banged up all over from where he hit the windshield,” the trooper said. When contacted Monday, the hospital said Staton had already been discharged. Charges are pending.
