Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a crash on San Carlos Boulevard in South Fort Myers that killed a bicyclist.
Authorities say the crash happened when the driver of a Toyota Corolla lost control driving around a bend. His vehicle spun his vehicle around several times and then overturned, crashing into a bicyclist. The impact threw the bicyclist off his bicycle and he came to a rest against a tree. The vehicle then stopped against a billboard, according to the report.
It was later confirmed that the cyclist died from his injuries. Florida Highway patrol says the driver of the Toyota Corolla received minor injuries. Alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash.
The bicyclist that was killed in the crash has not been named as next of kin have not been notified.
A investigation is still ongoing.
