Source: A 49-year-old bicyclist returning home from work early Sunday in St. Augustine was killed in a hit-and-run accident. Christian Schroom, 49, was apparently off his bicycle when he was hit on Anastasia Boulevard near Arrandondo Avenue shortly before 1 a.m., said Mark Samson of the St. Augustine Police Department. Samson said the bicycle was not damaged but police do not know if Schroom fell off before being struck or had dismounted for some other reason. He said no witnesses were at the scene, though a woman arrived shortly afterward and attempted unsuccessfully to give cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Schroom, who had lived in St. Augustine for about five years, had gotten off work at the Red Lobster restaurant at U.S. 1 and Florida 312 at midnight and was riding home, Samson said. Anyone with information about the crash can call the St. Augustine Police Department at (904) 825-1070.
