NORTH NAPLES, Fla. - A bicyclist was ticketed for a crash early Thursday morning that landed her in the hospital.

33-year-old Erika Brynne was riding her bicycle west on Vanderbilt Beach Road approaching Tiburon Drive around 6:18 a.m. 

She was hit by a car and taken to Naples Community Hospital with minor injuries.

The driver told the Florida Highway Patrol that he couldn't see Brynne because she was wearing dark clothing and didn't have a light on her bike.

The FHP cited 26-year-old Bongani Mahlungu of Naples with careless driving and driving on a suspended license.  Brynne was ticketed for riding her bike without a light.
