Clearwater police have charged a driver after hitting and killing a motorcyclist Sunday night.
It happened just after 9:30 at the intersection of Belleair Road and Missouri Avenue.
Police say the motorcyclist was traveling north on Missouri when he was struck by a 2001 Buick Century.
The driver of the Buick was identified as Casandra Hafford. The motorcyclist was identified as Michael Ballard.
Ballard was wearing a helmet.
Investigators say Hafford was drunk at the time of the accident. She apparently turned into Ballard as he was heading northbound on Missouri on his Kawasaki bike.
The victim was rushed to the hospital, but doctors could not save him.
The road was closed for several hours while officers investigated.
