At 1:55 a.m. Jan. 17, the Fort Myers Police Department responded to a traffic crash on Colonial Boulevard involving two motorcycles.

Preliminary information indicates that they were headed eastbound on Colonial when they lost control and collided, according to officials. The motorcycles were traveling more than 100 mph at the time.

Alcohol is believed to have played a role in the crash.

They were not wearing helmets and they were driving without motorcycle endorsements, according to officials.

Eric Daniel Pimentel Santiago, 34, of Lehigh Acres, died on scene. Luis Manuel Bermudez Santiago, 23, of Lehigh Acres, was trauma-alerted to Lee Memorial Hospital.

Santiago's condition was unknown Monday.

The two motorcyclists are cousins, and whether they were racing remains under investigation.
