Tampa man identified as motorcyclist in fatal Clearwater collision

CLEARWATER — The motorcyclist who died after a Saturday night crash on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard has been identified by Clearwater police as 25-year-old Dawon Antonio Anderson of Tampa.

Anderson had been riding a 2012 Yamaha motorcycle eastbound just after 11 p.m. A minivan driver coming from the opposite direction made a left turn to enter the Burger King parking lot, police said, and the motorcycle slammed into the van's passenger side.

Anderson was taken to Mease Countryside Hospital, where he died on Sunday.

The minivan driver, 56-year-old Dale Ross of Clearwater, was treated at the scene near the Clearwater Mall for her injuries.

Police said a child who was in the minivan was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg for minor injuries.

They continue to investigate.
