Bicyclist seriously injured in crash on Belleair Beach

Pinellas sheriff's deputies were investigating a crash on Belleair Beach Monday in which a bicyclist was critically injured.

The crash occurred about 3 p.m. as Nathen Wright, 66, of Largo, was pedaling a bicycle south on Gulf Boulevard in the bike lane. At the same time, Kelvin Simmerman, 55, of Dunedin, was driving south on Gulf Boulevard in a 2013 GMC pickup.

Near the area of Howard Drive, Simmerman looked down at a note pad, veered to the right and struck Wright's bike, deputies said.

Wright was taken by helicopter to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Simmerman was not injured.

The crash remained under investigation Monday night.
