Winter Haven, Florida -- Polk County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a crash between an ATV and a bicycle that killed one person and critically injured three other people.

Around 10:20 p.m. on May 11, a witness reported that a black ATV was traveling on Bomber road at a high rate of speed. According to the witness, the driver did not have any lights on. Then, the witness saw the ATV's brake lights activate just as it appeared to swerve and take evasive actions.

The witness approached the area and found the ATV lying upside down in a ditch on the side of the road, and a mangled bicycle nearby.

Three victims- Danny Bermea Hr., Ginno Cano, and Jose Cano-Mendez are in critical condition at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. The fourth victim, Israel Bible Jr. died as a result of his injuries.

It is unclear which victims were on the ATV and which were on the bicycle. There were no helmets observed on any victim and speed and impairment may be a factor.

The investigation is ongoing.
