Cyclist injured in accident

A cyclist was injured March 25 in an accident in the 5900 block of Marina Drive in Holmes Beach.

Karen Mischra, 42, of Tampa, was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg by Bayflite Air Medical Transport.

The accident occurred at about 9:15 a.m.

Witnesses told Holmes Beach police that Mischra, who has family on the Island, was riding on Marina Drive when she lost control of her bicycle and flipped.

Police Lt. Dale Stephenson said Mischra told relatives she was frightened when a large RV passed her.

A spokeswoman with Bayfront said Mischra was in fair condition as The Islander went to press.
