A 43-year-old Lehigh Acres man, identified as Robert D. Drumheller, was killed in a motorcycle crash that involved two other cars on Sunday, August 12, at 5:47 p.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Drumheller was declared dead at the scene at SR82 east of Harcourt Avenue.

Driver Bianca Crystal Melchor, 21, of Naples received minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene. The driver of the third vehicle, Jackson Pierre, 49, Fort Myers nor that vehicle's passenger suffered any injuries, police said.

The FHP reported that Melchor drove her vehicle over the double, yellow-painted, center lane divider lines and went into the eastbound lane of SR82.

Her vehicle then sideswiped the Lexus being driven by Pierre. Melchor's vehicle continued westbound in the eastbound lane and struck Drumheller's motorcycle.

The investigation continues.
