According to Walsh, “We were cycling up the Key Biscayne bridge side-by-side, in the bike lane, having a conversation. We didn’t even see anything…Then there was a loud bang and the next thing you know I was on the ground and Aaron was 30 feet up the road lying on his back on the road not moving.”

Traverso turned himself in on Wednesday.  The accident is still under investigation, and Traverso could face more charges.
