Clearwater Police need help identifying a man and woman on a tandem bicycle hit by a car on the Memorial Causeway.

At 6:18 a.m. on Monday, a passing motorist spotted handlebars in the road and called police.  The two cyclists were later found, badly injured, in a grassy area on the side of the eastbound lanes.

The crash shut down the eastbound lanes of the Causeway at Island Way.  They were re-opened to traffic around 11:10 a.m.
