A Homosassa man died Sunday evening in a hospital after being injured earlier that morning when a truck rear-ended his bicycle in the parking lot of a Homosassa gas station.

Following the 8:43 a.m. collision at the RaceTrac on the corner of U.S. 19 and West Homosassa Trail, medics transported Jeromy Landon Bresler to Ocala Regional Medical Center with serious injuries, according to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) crash report.

Bresler later died at 6:07 p.m. He was 36.

According to FHP’s report, Bresler rode into the gas station’s parking lot ahead of a southbound Chevrolet pickup driven by 32-year-old Weeki Wachee resident Jamie Jo Fox-Brady, who didn’t see Bresler and collided with the back of his bicycle.

FHP reported that alcohol was not involved. Charges are pending.
