A Fort Myers man was killed after losing control of his motorcycle in Hardee County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Matthew Miranda, 44, was driving a 2011 Suzuki Hayabusa east on County Road 634, also known as Sweetwater Road in Zolfo Springs just before noon Sunday, according to troopers.

Miranda, who was alone on the bike, lost control of the Suzuki as it went into a left hand curve, troopers said. The motorcycle traveled onto the grass on the road’s south shoulder and overturned, ejecting Miranda, an accident report said.

He died at the scene from his injuries.
