A St. Augustine bicyclist was killed early Sunday after apparently being struck by a vehicle that left the scene, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.
Shortly before 7 a.m., the body of Madison Jacob Meyer, 26, was found lying on the side of the road near the intersection of Hilltop Road and Kings Estate Road.
A bicycle located nearby appeared to have been struck by a vehicle, according to a Sheriff’s Office release.
Meyer was traveling south on Hilltop Road some time Sunday morning when he was struck from behind, according to the release.
Raven Rosario was born with spina bifida, but has not let his paralyzed legs stop him from living as full a life as possible for all of his 14 years.
At 5, he water-skied. He has also surfed and played sled hockey and wheelchair basketball, among other things. And on Sunday, the Lake Asbury Junior High seventh-grader tried out a new sport — sitting volleyball.
“It was pretty fun,” he said, “but hard to learn.”
