According to investigators, 73-year-old None Yulip was driving his 1998 Yamaha motorcycle southbound on 49th Street South in the curb lane, just south of Newton Avenue South. Bicyclist, 51-year-old James Perry, was crossing 49th Street South, from east to west, when he crossed into the path of Yulip’s motorcycle, causing the collision.

Paramedics responded to the scene and treated Yulip for non-life threatening injuries as a result of the crash. Perry was treated for life-threatening injuries. Both were transported to Bayfront Medical Center and are expected to make full recoveries.
