17-Year-Old Bicyclist Dies After Being Struck by DUI BMW Driver

A DUI manslaughter charge has been filed after 17-year-old Sophie Delott was killed while riding her bicycle Friday night, June 29.

The tragic accident happened on the Indian Rocks Causeway Bridge, around 10:30 PM. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, 69-year-old Neil Singhal was headed west on the bridge when he suddenly veered into the bicycle lane, striking Delott. She was thrown from her bicycle and suffered life-threatening injuries. Emergency services personnel rushed her to a local hospital, where she later died.

Singhal was uninjured, and troopers arrested him on DUI manslaughter charges.

Delott was the only female football player at her high school, Seminole High School, and had recently enlisted in the Marine Corps.

“Everything she did had nothing to do with wanting to be rewarded,” her football coach Chris Miller said. “It was always about everybody else with her.”
