MOtorcyclist runs into back of Sheriff's van

A 55-year-old Largo man driving a Harley-Davidson motorcycle was seriously injured late Saturday when he ran into the rear of a Sheriff's Office jail transport van, authorities said.

The crash occurred about 10:50 p.m. on Ulmerton Road at 101st Street N. The transport van was eastbound on Ulmerton and had stopped at a red light at 101st Street. When the light turned green and the van's driver began to accelerate, the motorcycle, also traveling eastbound, struck the rear of the van, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

The driver of the motorcycle, identified as Daniel Boggs of 3660 East Bay Drive, was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Boggs was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The driver and a passenger of the transport van were not injured. Deputies say alcohol may be a contributing factor in the crash.
