Tavernier man dies after apparent fall from bike

An Tavernier man died Saturday at Mariner’s Hospital, apparently after falling from his bike and hitting his head.

Deputies responded to Mariner’s Hospital after 63 year old Richard Lhommedieu, who lived on West Indies Road in Tavernier = was transported there with a head injury. He was found by a woman on her way to work. He was on Burton Drive in Tavernier, lying next to his bike and bleeding from his head.

There were reportedly no other injuries to indicate he was hit by a car and, although there were no witnesses to what happened, the injury he sustained indicated a fall from the bike.

No foul play is suspected.
