Bradenton man improving after crash

A Bradenton man appears to be improving following a Dec. 14 single-vehicle crash on Perico Island.

Timothy “Tim” Andricks, 18, an employee at the Holmes Beach Service Station, was listed in good condition last week, but continued to show signs of improvement after being removed from a life-support system.

The accident occurred at about 9:30 p.m. Dec. 14. Andricks, according to the Bradenton Police Department, was driving east on Manatee Avenue after just leaving Anna Maria Island. His Jeep went off the road, striking a sign and then a cluster of trees.

He was rushed to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg by medical helicopter.

The accident remains under investigation, with results of a drug and alcohol test, routinely conducted in a serious accident, pending.
