Motorcyclist injured in afternoon traffic crash

A Pensacola man is hospitalized in serious but stable condition after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a Jeep this afternoon.

The crash occurred around 2:40 p.m. near the intersection of North N and West Cervantes streets.

Officer Kevin Smith said a 2004 Honda VTX motorcycle driven by Emett Stromas, 68, of Pensacola was northbound on N Street. Smith said Stromas stopped at a stop sign at N and Cervantes Street and was going to make a right-hand turn when he pulled in front of a 2006 Jeep Wrangler, which also was eastbound on Cervantes Street.

The Jeep was driven by William Allen, 55, also of Pensacola. Allen was wearing a seatbelt and was not hurt in the crash. Stromas was wearing a helmet.

Stromas was issued a citation for failure to yield right-of-way, Smith said.

Cervantes Street was blocked to motorists from approximately 2:40 p.m. until 4:20 p.m. between N and M streets while officers investigated the crash.
