PINELLAS PARK – A Pennsylvania motorcyclist was critically injured Wednesday (May 23) in a traffic crash on 49th Street N, according to the Pinellas Park Police Department.

The crash happened about 7:12 p.m. at the intersection of 49th Street N and 94th Avenue in Pinellas Park.

Wilton Costa, 62, of Pinellas Park, was driving a 1995 Ford F350 pickup truck north on 49th when he made a left turn at 94th Avenue. The Ford hit the 1999 Harley Davidson motorcycle that Rickert was riding causing it to slide through the intersection, police said.
