Bikers rally for motorcyclist killed in Fort Myers hit-and-run

Adam King

FORT MYERS, Fla. — A phalanx of nearly 50 bikers rumbled Sunday past the site where one of their own was struck and killed in a hit-and-run crash.

The ride was dedicated to the memory of Adam King, the 18-year-old who died June 19 in the wreck on Colonial Boulevard near the Midpoint Bridge.

“Anybody that rides a motorcycle, you’re considered family here,” ride organizer Angela Milisitz said. “So, no matter what happens, we bond together and we make sure our voices and our bikes are heard.”

The focus was on King as well as the broader phenomenon of hit-and-run crashes. The ride began at The WingHouse Bar and Grill on U.S. 41, where surveillance video showed South Fort Myers resident Adam Costello shortly before the crash.

Costello was arrested in September in connection to the case. A court date is set for Wednesday, said Tracy Miller, King’s mother.

Miller is hoping that justice for her son is served.

“He was just a great kid,” Miller said. “He was 18, just coming through his teen years and starting his life, and it just ended too soon.”
