Sixteen-year-old Robert Miller was riding on the handlebars of a friend’s bike when he was thrown into traffic in early July. The fall forced him into the path of a car, which injured the teen. Miller was transported to Broward Health North for treatment of his injuries, but he later died at the hospital.
According to police, twenty-six-year-old was heading down Royal Palm Boulevard around 10 p.m. when the cyclist attempted to cross the road. Police believe the cyclist stopped short, forcing Miller off of the handlebars and into the street. The cyclist fled after the accident and police are still looking for any information as to his identity.
A memorial was held for Miller last week and almost five hundred family and friends were in attendance. Friends have planned a vigil to be held at 7 p.m. tonight to honor their friend. The vigil is being held at Coral Glades High School in Coral Springs.
