Cyclists Plan Memorial Ride, Protest at City Commission in Carlos Bertonatti Hit-and-Run
On Riptide's message boards and across the web, Miami's bikers have raged about Sunday's gruesome hit-and-run accident near Key Biscayne that left 44-year-old cyclist Christophe Le Canne dead on the Rickenbacker Causeway.
Carlos Bertonatti, a wannabe professional singer and all-around horrific driver -- with more than 40 citations in 12 years on the road -- was trashed when he slammed into Le Canne after 8 a.m. and then sped away without bothering to stop and help, police say.
At Thursday's city commission hearing, a special item on funding for the Key Biscayne firehouse has been added to the agenda, tentatively scheduled for 3 p.m.
