ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

A bicyclist is fighting for his life Friday morning after a serious collision with a motorcyclist.

Police say Jason Peter Smith was riding his bike southbound on 7 Street North in St. Petersburg when he apparently ran a stop sign at the intersection of 1 Avenue North.

Thomas Lepka, who was riding a Honda motorcycle, did not have time to stop, and he struck the left side of the bike.

Both were ejected and hit the roadway. Lepka was wearing a helmet and Smith was not.

Police say Lepka suffered minor injuries, but Smith is in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center.

The police department is still investigating if any of the men were impaired at the time.
