Eddie Montalvo died Thursday night after a crash in Montura Ranch Estates at 9:49 p.m.
Noel Garcia Perez, 23 of Clewiston in a 2009 Chevy Malibu was traveling south on N Hacienda Street, south of Bald Cypress Avenue. Eddie Montalvo, 20 of Clewiston was traveling north on N Hacienda Street, just south of Bald Cypress Avenue on a 2006 Suzuki SV650 motorcycle.
Perez stated that he was unable to see the motorcycle approaching due to headlights from another
vehicle that was approaching in the northbound lane behind it. Perez was making a left turn
into his driveway and turned left, into the path of the motorcycle.
The front of the cycle struck the right front of the car. The collision caused Montalvo to separate from the motorcycle which propelled to an uncontrolled rest onto the grass shoulder east of the roadway.
The Chevy was at final rest by the entrance of the driveway facing east. Perez was charged with failure of right of way.
