WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A 30-year-old man died over the weekend after he was hit by a van while riding a customized double-decker bicycle in suburban West Palm Beach at an intersection just west of his apartment.
Around 10:45 a.m. Saturday Brian Magan, of suburban West Palm Beach, was riding on the customized bike, a bike with two frames welded on top of one another, west on Purdy Lane about a quarter of a mile west of Military Trail.
David Kraft, 55, of Boynton Beach was driving a 1987 Dodge van when he hit the bicyclist in the travel lane, according to a traffic report released today by a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s spokeswoman.
The bike did not have any lights or reflectors and was a “flat grey color”, the release says.
Magan, who was not wearing a helmet and was dressed in dark clothing, was thrown from the bike and hit the top of the van’s windshield before he was thrown to the ground.
He was taken to Delray Medical Center where he died Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m.
