Cyclist Identified in Coconut Grove Accident
Lum's friends and family have set up a website for donations to help pay his medical bills. According to the site, Lum did not have health insurance at the time of the accident.
Miami Police Det. William Moreno says Lum was not wearing a helmet but, at age 20, was not required to by law. Moreno adds that the driver of the car involved in the accident stopped to help in the investigation and that authorities are still interviewing witnesses.
As New Times has previously reported, Miami-Dade is one of the deadliest counties for cyclists in the state. At least 12 bikers were killed in traffic accidents last year.
