ENGLEWOOD, FL. -- A motorcyclist died in a crash in Charlotte county Sunday evening at 8:18 p.m. said the Florida Highway Patrol.
Daniel Paul, 50 of Englewood was traveling east on State Road 776 in the inside lane on a Harley-Davidson Fatboy and Nathaniel James Nelson, 38 of Fort Myers in a 2008 Toyota Corolla was stopped in the inside lane of eastbound SR 776, with the intersection of Spinnaker Blvd, for a red light.
Paul attempted to pass by Nelson's vehicle. This caused the left side of the cycle to collide with the right rear of the car.
The motorcycle continued through the intersection running the steady red light. The cycle was then laid onto its side and slid east on SR 776 coming to final rest in the inside lane.
The Toyota proceeded through the intersection coming to a controlled stop on the inside shoulder.
Paul came to final rest in the inside lane of SR 776 and was transported to Englewood Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
