A 51-year-old motorcyclist from Venice was killed early Sunday in a crash in North Fort Myers.
The Florida Highway Patrol said the motorcyclist was traveling north at a high rate of speed on North Cleveland Avenue, just south of North Fork Drive, as an SUV was making a left turn out of the RaceTrac. As the SUV entered the median, the motorcyclist swerved left and collided with the SUV, troopers said.
The motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was thrown from the bike. He died at the scene.
The 64-year-old driver of the SUV was not injured.
The Florida Highway Patrol no longer releases the names of those involved in crashes, citing Marsy’s Law.
