Oldsmar Motorcyclist Seriously Injured in Dunedin Crash
Neither impairment nor speed was a factor in the crash, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.
DUNEDIN – An Oldsmar man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was thrown from his motorcycle during a traffic crash Wednesday (April 25), the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Gabriel Dalrymple, 34, of Oldsmar, was airlifted to St. Joseph’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries. He was wearing a helmet.
The other driver, Jeffrey Shore, 55, of Dunedin, refused medical treatment at the scene. Pinellas deputies cited him for failure to yield to oncoming traffic. Deputies said they do not believe either speed or impairment was a factor in the crash.
The crash happened about 7:34 a.m. at the intersection of State Road 580 and Heather Ridge Boulevard in Dunedin.
Shore was driving his 2007 Dodge Ram east on SR 580 when he tried to make a left turn onto Heather Ridge, deputies said. Dalrymple was driving a 1993 Harley Davidson motorcycle westbound on SR 580 in the curb lane approaching Heather Ridge when Shore’s truck turned in front of Dalrymple’s motorcycle.
Dalrymple’s Harley Davidson crashed into the passenger side of Shore’s Dodge truck and Dalrymple was ejected from the motorcycle.
