Investigators say that based on the preliminary investigation, the bicyclist crossed against the red crosswalk indicator and into oncoming traffic. 

Investigators say that alcohol does not appear to be a factor. 

The bicyclist was transported by ambulance to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with critical injuries.

The crash resulted in the total shutdown of the northbound lanes of Frontage Road along with the right lanes of Roosevelt Blvd.

The roadway has reopened and the investigation is on-going.
