ESTERO, Fla.- Authorities believe high speed played a factor in a crash that killed another motorcyclist last night.

Anthony Krizka, 26, was thrown from his motorcycle while taking the curve at the intersection of Estero Parkway and Ben Hill Griffin Parkway, just after 11:00 p.m. He was transported to Gulf Coast Hospital, where he later died.

The detective says while travelling southbound in the left lane on Ben Hill Griffin Parkway, the motorcycle passed a vehicle in the right lane and was unable to negotiate the curve and get back into the left lane. The motorcycle crossed over the median and crashed into shrubbery and small trees; then the motorcyclist was ejected from the motorcycle.
