NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. -- Christian Davis died early Wednesday morning after fighting for his life following a collision with a car in Neptune Beach Thursday.
Davis was thrown off his bike and into the road on impact.
His father, William Davis, said he cannot help but wonder if Christian's prognosis would have been better had help arrived more quickly.
"That extra half an hour or whatever that it took for rescue to get there may have had some impact...," said William Davis.
According to Jacksonville Fire and Rescue spokesman Tom Francis, the closest rescue unit was not able to respond to Davis' accident because it was already on another emergency call.
Instead of Rescue 55, which is based nearby, Rescue 30 took the call. Rescue 30 is based near Regency.
Francis said the average response time for JFRD in an urban area is about four minutes, but that time increases if the closest unit is not available.
