MANATEE — A 32-year-old Sarasota woman was injured when the Harley Davidson motorcycle she was driving collided with a Ford sport utility vehicle at 9:30 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 301 in Manatee County.
The woman was riding her motorcycle northbound on U.S. 301 and was approaching the intersection of 30th Avenue East in the left lane when a 44-year-old Bradenton man driving the SUV attempted to cross the intersection when the traffic light changed to green.
Both people entered the intersection at the same time and the front of the motorcycle struck the right front corner of the SUV, ejecting the woman, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.
The woman, who was listed in serious condition Sunday at Bayfront Medical Center, was not wearing a helmet, the report said.
