FHP: Man dies after motorcycle hits car

A motorcyclist hit another driver, ejecting and killing himself Friday morning, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Juan Medina, 35, of Orlando was driving a 2012 Yamaha motorcycle on the State Road 408 eastbound exit ramp to State Road 417 when he hit a 2006 four-door Audi from behind around 2:35 a.m., said Kim Montes, FHP spokeswoman.

When Medina hit the vehicle being driven by Robert Shortlidge, 20, of Orlando, he was ejected from the motorcycle. He died at the scene, according to FHP.

Medina "was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to maneuver" around Shortlidge, Montes said.

Shayda Christensen, 19, of Orlando was a passenger in Shortlidge's vehicle.

The crash remains under investigation.
