Wellborn bicyclist killed in accident versus car

Live Oak — A Wellborn resident was killed early Tuesday morning after being struck by a car while riding a bicycle down 180th Street, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to a FHP report, on Tuesday, July 8, at approximately 6:38 a.m., Amberlee Joy Price, 30, Jennings, was driving a 2010 Ford Taurus and was traveling west on 180th Street. A Wellborn resident was riding a Schwinn bicycle and was also traveling west on 180th Street, closest to the north roadway edge on the white fog line.

Price reportedly traveled slightly off the paved portion of the roadway onto the north grass shoulder just prior to impact with the bicyclist. The right front of the Taurus struck the rear tire of the bike within the westbound lane. At impact, the Wellborn resident was ejected from the bike onto the hood of the Taurus.

Price brought the vehicle to a controlled stop and a final resting position oriented in a westerly direction within the westbound lane. The bicyclist came to a final resting position on the north grass shoulder oriented in a westerly direction.

The Wellborn resident was pronounced deceased at the scene by Suwannee County EMS.

The accident is under investigation and charges are pending. The blood alcohol content results for Price are also pending.

The identification of the deceased has not been released as of press deadline. FHP is currently searching for the next of kin.
