Michael Figueroa Obituary: In loving memory of Tampa man killed in Courtney Campbell Causeway crash.

Following a collision on the Courtney Campbell Causeway Sunday afternoon, two deaths have now been officially verified.

The collision happened at 3 p.m., when two motorcycles were travelling east at a fast speed when one motorcycle slammed into the back of a Hyundai Sonata in the middle lane. This is according to the Clearwater Police Department.

The force of the collision sent the automobile into the curb lane, where it struck the other motorcycle rider. A 51-year-old Tampa resident who was riding a motorbike passed away there.

A 26-year-old Valrico resident who was critically injured was transported to a local hospital and ultimately passed away from his wounds.

The Hyundai Sonata’s female driver did not sustain any wounds.

The victims are now identified as 26-year-old David Battiato of Valrico and 51-year-old Michael Figueroa of Tampa.

For several hours, the eastbound lanes were blocked while police looked into the collision. According to the police department, the westbound lanes were blocked off to make room for a medical helicopter.

Since then, all lanes have reopened.
