DUNEDIN – Three bicyclists riding as part of a group from the Suncoast Riding Club were injured in a crash that occurred about 12:19 p.m. March 16 along County Road One, just north of Michigan Boulevard in Dunedin.

According to investigators with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Major Accident Investigation Team, the cyclists were riding in a pack of about 30. The riders were near the end of their ride, at mile 53 of a 57-mile ride they had planned for the day.

The cyclists were riding in close proximity heading northbound on County Road One, just north of Michigan Boulevard, when Roberto Singson’s front tire touched the back tire of a rider in front of him. Deputies said Singson, 53, of Clearwater lost control, fell of his bike and struck his head. Two other cylists, James Poitras, 60, of Oldsmar and John Burchfield, 55, of Oldsmar struck Singson’s bike causing them to fall.

Sinsgon was transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries. Singson suffered head trauma. Poitras was transported by ambulance to Mease Countryside Hospital for a broken right clavicle. His injuries were non-life threatening. Burchfield was treated on scene for minor scratches and abrasions.

Deputies said the crash appears to be accidental in nature. All three riders were wearing helmets.
