Alex Jay Hall, of St. Petersburg, was attempting to turn east on Gulf-to-Bay when he was hit by the driver of the Honda motorcycle, Michael Curtis Smith, of Clearwater.

Smith flew through the air and quickly got up after landing in the roadway.  He was not injured.

Hall was cited for an improper left turn and driving with a suspended license without knowledge.
