On November 8, 2017 at approximately 10:15 p.m., the Lee County Sheriffs Office received a call reference a two-vehicle crash located at S. Tamiami Trail and Broadway Avenue. Deputies responded to the scene to investigate.

Due to the nature of the incident, a Traffic Homicide Investigator responded to the scene. The crash involved a Hyundai Elantra and a Honda Shadow motorcycle. The investigation revealed the driver of the Hyundai violated the right of way of the motorcycle by running a red light. The operator of the motorcycle suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash.

A thorough investigation was completed and it appears this was a very unfortunate accident. Alcohol was not a factor. The driver was cited for failure to stop at a steady red signal.
