A Driver Faces Charges for Turning into the Path of a Motorcycle, Ejecting Its Rider on Thomas Drive
The Florida Highway Patrol charged Brandon T. Pearson, 18, of Panama City Beach, with violating right of way, according to a crash report.
Injured in the Sunday evening crash was 22-year-old Spencer J. Seymore, who was headed north on Thomas about 6 p.m. when the southbound Pearson made a left turn in front of him, troopers said.
Seymore’s 2002 Suzuki hit the right side of Pearson’s 1991 Chevrolet model, and Seymore flew off, landing in the road. He was wearing a helmet but suffered serious injuries.
He was treated and released from the emergency room at Bay Medical Center, hospital staff said.
