Two Injured As Motorcycle Hits Pedestrians

Motorcycle Couldn't Avoid Pedestrians Stepping Into Street

FORT MYERS, FL. -- Two pedestrians and a Harley Davidson rider were injured Sunday night about 9:30 in a collision between the motorcycle and the pedestrians.

Kristy Shawn Priddy, 32 of Lehigh Acres and Anthony Ordones 22 of Fort Myers were both standing in the median of State Road 80 facing north as a 2009 motorcycle was traveling west on SR 80 in the inside lane.

For unknown reasons, Priddy and Ordones walked in a northerly direction in front of the motorcycle's path. Driver Brian Keith Sloan, 48 of Fort Myers could not avoid impact and as a result struck the two pedestrians with the motorcycle's front end.

After impact, the Harley overturned onto it's right side rotating in a clockwise direction while skidding through the westbound lanes of SR 80 said FHP Trooper Specialist Richard M. Verbiest.

The cycle came to final rest facing north in the westbound outside lane. Both pedestrians were transported to Lee Memorial Hospital prior to the arrival of Trooper Verbiest.

Sloan had serious injuries and was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital.

Priddy has critical injuries and charges are pending investigation. Ordones was charged with failure to yield and had minor injuries.
