Two injured as motorcycle, bicycle collide in Gulfport

Deputies assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office’s Major Accident Investigation Team are investigating a motorcycle vs. bicycle crash in Gulfport.

According to investigators, 73-year-old None Yulip was driving his 1998 Yamaha motorcycle southbound on 49th St. S. in the curb lane, just south of Newton Ave. S. The bicyclist, 51-year-old James Perry, was crossing 49th St. S., from east to west, when he crossed into the path of Yulip’s motorcycle, causing the collision.

Paramedics responded to the scene and treated Yulip for non-life threatening injuries as a result of the crash. Perry was treated for life-threatening injuries. Both were transported to Bayfront Medical Center and are expected to make full recoveries.

Investigators say Perry was not utilizing a designated crosswalk at the time of the crash and showed signs of impairment. Speed was not a factor in the crash.
