Cyclist found impaled on handlebars

Freak accident in Tallahassee, Florida

Reports from Tallahassee, Florida say a 49 year old man is dead after being impaled on the handlebars of his own bicycle.

The incident happened about Tuesday, local time. Police attended the scene after a passing motorist spotted the fallen cyclist, later revealed to be 49 year old Vincent Sullivan. When police arrived on the scene Sullivan was still alive, but he died later at the hospital.

An autopsy has taken place but results not yet released.

Tallahassee Police Department spokesman David McCranie said there was no evidence to suggest that Sullivan was hit by a car but that the autopsy should tell investigators more about what happened. They are appealing for witnesses to the accident that took place near Lake Lodge Apartments on

Lake Avenue
