Posted: Updated:

Two motorcycle drivers are recovering at Bayfront Medical Center Thursday morning after taking a sliding turn on Gulfport Boulevard Wednesday night.

Gulfport Police officers shut down the eastbound lanes of the 5900 block of the boulevard for about two hours investigating the scene of the accident, they told us.

According to the police report, witnesses saw two motorcycles, a Suzuki and a Yamaha going east on Gulfport at high speed, when the Suzuki slid out of control near the 59th Street turn. It caused the Yamaha to slide as well. Both motorcycles hit the south curb.

Marcello Ciampolillo of Belleair, who drove the Suzuki, and David Heyveld of Largo, who drove the Yamaha, are at the hospital. Doctors listed their condition as stable.
