Moped driver killed in LaBelle crash


A moped driver was killed in a crash early Tuesday in LaBelle.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the 30-year-old man was driving the moped on SR-80 when a sedan ran into the back of him near Phillips Road. The moped driver and his passenger, another 30-year-old man, were thrown from the moped.

The driver died at the scene and his passenger was taken to Lehigh Regional Hospital with minor injuries. Troopers said neither wore a helmet.

The driver of the sedan, also a 30-year-old man, was not injured.

The crash remains under investigation.

The Florida Highway Patrol no longer releases the names of those involved in crashes, citing Marsy’s Law.
