A 22-year-old man identified as Ignacio Juan Pedro died when he crashed his motorcycle into the rear of a stopped school bus on a Bonita Springs residential street.
As reported by Florida Highway Patrol, he slammed his motorcycle into a school bus that was dropping off students. FHP reported that Juan Pedro was traveling west on Pennsylvania Avenue near Playa Del Rey Lane on a 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle when he struck the left rear of a Lee County School District bus.
Report says, the bus was stopped near Playa Del Rey unloading student passengers with its lights activated. Pedro was knocked from the motorcycle and struck a pickup. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
None of the 20 to 25 student passengers on school bus at the time of the crash, nor the driver, were injured. The driver and a passenger in the third vehicle were not injured as well.
Police are investigating the actual cause of the crash.
