The article indicated the bicyclist, later identified as Carmella Prestia, had sustained serious injuries.

When I clicked on the e-mail link, it gave me an invalid URL link so I searched the TV station’s website and found out why: This is a fairly busy traffic area for those not familiar with Gulfport, Mississippi. Local newspaper update on the story: to the family and friends

In the past, I have ridden my bicycle over this bridge and can attest to it being dangerous on a good day.
