Motorcyclist killed in Pinellas Park crash involving SUV

Three other people were hurt.

PINELLAS PARK, Fla. — A motorcyclist was killed in a crash Monday morning at 49th Street North and 126th Avenue North, police said.

Officers were sent around 7:20 a.m. to the intersection where an SUV and motorcycle had collided, according to a Pinellas Park Police Department news release. 

It's believed 38-year-old Maxwell Jenkins, a Clearwater man, was heading south on 49th Street as an SUV driven by a 44-year-old Pinellas Park woman was making a turn. The two crashed at the intersection, throwing Jenkins from the bike, police said.

The woman and two other passengers suffered minor injuries, according to the department. Police say neither alcohol nor speed appears to be factors in the crash, and an investigation is ongoing.

Southbound 49th Street was shut down at Ulmerton Road but has since reopened to traffic.
