The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

She was taken by ambulance to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Port St. Lucie in critical condition.

Helen’s condition was described as stable, according to an Assistant Chief and spokesman for Indian River County Fire Rescue.

The car was driven by a 36-year-old man from Indian River County. The driver and a passenger declined medical treatment at the scene, the spokesman said.

Florida Highway Patrol said, troopers are still working to determine if either drugs or alcohol had a major role or had caused the crash.

The Florida Highway Patrol department initially described the injured bicyclist as a man, however, the information was incorrect.

St. Lucie County Sheriff Office is asking anyone with relevant information concerning the crash to contact the Florida Highway Patrol Department.


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
