Teen killed in atv crash

Posted: Updated:
LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

A Winter Haven teen is dead, and three other young men are critically injured, after an ATV crashed into a bicycle.

Polk deputies say the accident happened late last night on bomber road, just West of Gerber Dairy Road in Winter Haven.

Witnesses say they saw the ATV speed by, with its lights off. They say the driver then swerved, and slammed on his brakes.

They raced to help, and found the ATV lying upside down in a ditch, and a mangled bicycle nearby.

Eighteen year old Israel Bible Junior was dead, and three other young men were badly hurt.

Danny Bermea Junior, Ginno Cano and Jose Cano-mendez are in critical condition at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. None of the men were wearing helmets.

Polk deputies say they're not sure who was on the ATV, and who was on the bike.
