FORT MYERS, Fla. - The motorcyclist involved in a downtown Fort Myers accident has died from his injuries. It happened around 7pm and shut down part of First Street. When police arrived, they learned from witnesses that the motorcyclist was attempting to pass another car. The motorcyclist then struck a median, lost control and hit a light pole. The bike flipped and landed on top of him. The man was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital where he died from his injuries. Investigators say the motorcyclist was at fault for the crash and that his road rage was a factor. The motorcyclist was also not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, and the roads were wet due to the rain.
