Bicyclist injured in Seminole crash

SEMINOLE — Authorities are investigating a traffic crash that left a bicyclist seriously injured Wednesday.

The accident occurred around 4 p.m. on Park Boulevard at 90th Street, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.

The cyclist, identified as Paul David Lynn, 65 of Clearwater, was taken to a Bayfront Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, officials said.

Preliminary information indicates Lynn was riding his bike eastbound on the sidewalk along Park Boulevard approaching 90th Street when he collided with a 1999 Buick driven by David Gentner, 64, of St. Petersburg.

As Gentner, who was on southbound on 90th Street, pulled up to the stop sign and then proceeded onto Park, Lynn came off the sidewalk and hit the passenger side of the car. Lynn fell off his bike and hit his head on the ground, officials said.

It was unclear whether he was wearing a helmet.

No other details were released late Wednesday night.

    The good news is Tampa Bay's median household income finally crawled above $50,000 last year. The bad news is that figure — officially $51,115 by new U.S. Census Bureau data — still puts the Tampa Bay region as the poorest of the nation's 25 largest metro areas.
