Bicyclist hit by car in Pinellas Park

PINELLAS PARK — A bicyclist suffered life-threatening injuries late Friday when he moved into the path of a car and was struck from behind, Pinellas Park police said.

The bicyclist, Reginald Hunter, 52, of Tarpon Springs, suffered multiple injuries, including a head wound. He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center. Police said he was wearing dark clothing and his bike had no lights, making it difficult for motorists to see him.

The accident occurred at U.S. 19 and Gateway Centre Boulevard shortly before 11 p.m. Police said Hunter was in the median when he moved into the path of a 2008 Volkswagen Jetta driven by Jason Lane, 30, of Clearwater. Lane was not injured, but the front end of the Jetta was damaged.

Police said they are investigating the accident and no charges have been filed.
