Cyclist injured in bike v. semi accident

 bicyclist suffered non-life threatening injuries after running into a parked 18-wheeler on the outbound lanes of the Rickenbacker Causeway Tuesday morning.
Key Biscayne Police Chief Charles Press said no one was charged in the incident as of Tuesday.
According to Press, the accident occurred around 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 8, when the driver of a semi-truck pulled over to the side of the road to apparently look at directions.
The truck was about one-third of the way into the bike lane, Press said, and, “The unsuspecting bicyclist at the last minute tried to avoid the truck, but caught the corner of the tail end.”
The cyclist suffered leg injuries and was transported to the hospital by Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue, Press said.
Key Biscayne Police responded to assist with minor traffic backups that occurred due to the crash, Press said. “It was cleared up pretty quickly once we got rescue out of there,” he reported.
