A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a crash on SR-82 in Lehigh Acres Friday morning.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a car driven by a 61-year-old man from Cape Coral, with a 5-year-old boy as his passenger, was traveling north in the outside lane of SR-82, north of Sunshine Boulevard, around 6:45 a.m. A 26-year-old Lehigh Acres man on a motorcycle was traveling north in the center lane of SR-82.

The car changed lanes into the path of the motorcycle, which then rear-ended the car. The motorcyclist was transported to an area hospital with serious injuries.

The Florida Highway Patrol no longer releases the identities of people involved in vehicle crashes, citing Marsy’s Law.
