GOLDEN GATE ESTATES, Fla. - A crash early Saturday morning seriously injured a 54-year-old Naples man out for a bike right on Immokalee Road.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 28-year-old Daniel Barberena of Naples was driving north on Immokalee Road not far from Oil Well Road.  Edward J. Stephan was riding his bicycle north in the bike lane.

The FHP says it was foggy when Barberena drove his minivan into the bike lane hitting Stephan.  The impact sent the bike and rider about 57 feet.  Stephan landed on the grass shoulder.

Barberena was cited for careless driving.
