Recently I received an e-mail that I initially missed as I was going through my new e-mails. I saw it a few minutes ago and the headline grabbed my attention:
Gulfport bridge lanes closed after bicyclist hit by vehicle
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: http://www.wlox.com/story/39010728/bicyclist-killed-after-accident-on-gulfport-bridge. This is a fairly busy traffic area for those not familiar with Gulfport, Mississippi. Local newspaper update on the story: https://www.sunherald.com/news/local/counties/harrison-county/article217884210.html.Condolences 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.
