A Key West bicyclist who was critically injured on North Roosevelt Blvd Sunday morning has died. John C. Potter, 81, was pedaling across the crosswalk at Key Plaza when the crash occurred. He was flown to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition.
Potter crossed from the Home Depot side of North Roosevelt. As he came through the center island of the crosswalk, a Chevy pickup in the outbound lane slowed and crossed into the crosswalk. Potter’s bicycle struck the truck, driven by Modesto Mendoza Lopez, 52, also of Key West.
The incident remains under investigation.
