A southwest Florida HIghway Patrol deputy’s police cruiser hit a pedestrian who was walking her bicycle across Collier Boulevard.

A Florida Highway Patrol Ford Crown Victoria police cruiser hit a woman crossing Collier Boulevard near Pasedo Drive in Naples, Florida about 10:15 p.m. February 8, 2011. The police cruiser was traveling north on Collier Boulevard when the incident occurred.

The woman Cicelia McKinnon, 47, was impacted hard by the car and ended up under the car. She suffered a broken leg, a broken arm and internal injuries in the crash. She doesn’t have health insurance. She also has poor vision and no eye glasses.

The unemployed victim said she was crossing in a dark stretch of the road because her bike doesn’t have a light and she didn’t want to get cited for a no-light violation.
