Truck and motorcycle crash in Pinellas Park sends two to hospital

PINELLAS PARK — A crash between a motorcycle and a truck in Pinellas Park sent two men to the hospital Tuesday afternoon with serious injuries.

Christopher Brunette, 25, of Pinellas Park, was riding a Suzuki motorcycle about 1:28 p.m. in a grass field in the 9000 block of 60th Street N with a passenger, Daniel Brunette, 22, police said. The motorcycle drove west through a parking lot before moving into the street without yielding to oncoming traffic, police said.

At the same time, Anthony Powell Jr., 25, also of Pinellas Park, was driving south on 60th Street in a Dodge pickup when he tried to turn left into the parking lot, police said. The truck hit the motorcycle, throwing both Christopher and Daniel Brunette onto the ground.

Both were taken to Bayfront Medical Center with serious injuries, police said. Christopher Brunette was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, police said, but was riding the motorcycle with a suspended license.

Powell was not injured. The crash remained under investigation late Tuesday.
