OLDSMAR — A motorcyclist was seriously injured after colliding with a car on Tampa Road on Tuesday, Pinellas County sheriff's deputies said.
It happened at the intersection of Washington Avenue about 4:40 p.m., deputies said. Victor Guilfucci, 28, was going east on Tampa Road on a 2009 Suzuki motorcycle when he abruptly tried to change lanes, deputies said. The vehicle in front him slowed, deputies said, forcing Guilfucci to brake suddenly and plow into the car's rear window.
Guilfucci was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, officials said. The driver of the car, Marco Vila, 43, of Tampa, was not hurt.
Deputies are investigating.
On Wednesday evening, a Bayfront spokesman said Guilfucci, who was admitted to the hospital under a different last name, was in stable condition.
