Avalos crossed into the path of Tyler Bell, 23, who was traveling north on 301 in a Silverado pick-up. The two cars collided.
Bell sustained minor injuries and was treated at Manatee Memorial.
Avalos and his passenger, Claudia Avalos, 55, died as a result of the crash.
FHP says all lanes of U. S. 301 have been reopened.
