A motorcyclist was seriously injured after a car pulled in front of him on Gulf to Bay Boulevard in Clearwater on Thursday night, officials said.

The crash happened around 7:51 p.m. at Gulf to Bay and Numbus Avenue, according to investigators.

A four-door Chevrolet exited the parking lot at 2045 Gulf to Bay Blvd. and proceeded across the eastbound lanes into the median. The driver then proceeded across the westbound lanes in an attempt to head north on Nimbus.

Dupont was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg, public safety spokesperson Elizabeth Watts said.
