Two motorcyclists die in separate Pinellas crashes early Sunday

Two men died in separate motorcycle crashes early Sunday morning in north Pinellas County.

Florida troopers say Robbin T. Cornwell, 52, of Holiday died at the scene of a crash on Roosevelt Boulevard in St. Petersburg after his Yamaha motorcycle collided with a car as it turned left onto 28th Street N.

Cornwell, who was wearing a helmet, was traveling east in the inside lane of Roosevelt at 1:25 a.m. when his motorcycle crashed into a Ford Fusion driven by Justin D. Gragg, 23, of Largo. Gragg and a passenger, Stephanie D. Haggett, 28, also of Largo, suffered minor injuries and declined to be transported to a hospital, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Also early Sunday, a Dunedin man was killed when his Honda motorcycle collided with the median and flipped over near Lake Arbor Boulevard.

Troopers say Michael S. Brayden, 44, was traveling north on Belcher Road at about 3 a.m. when the accident occurred.

Brayden, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown onto the highway's northeast side. He was transported to Mease Countryside Hospital in Safety Harbor, where he later died.
