DUNEDIN — A man on a motor scooter died Friday night after colliding with a car on Bayshore Boulevard, authorities said.

Alex Gregory Lynam, 26, of Dunedin was southbound on Bayshore on his 2008 ZLMI Scooter at about 10:30 p.m. when a driver in a northbound 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis made a left turn in front of him near the intersection of Baywood Drive North, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.

The scooter and car collided head on, but at an angle, officials said.

Lynam, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.

The car's driver, Shirley A. Gil, 73, of Dunedin, was not injured and displayed no signs of impairment, officials said.

The incident remained under investigation Saturday.
