Pelican Bay man killed in motorcycle crash on I-75

NAPLES — A 65-year-old man who lived part-time in Pelican Bay and Pennsylvania died from injuries he received in a motorcycle crash Tuesday night on Interstate 75 in Collier County.

George B. Sordoni, of Dallas, Pa., died at Lee Memorial Hospital from injuries sustained in the 9:44 p.m. crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Sordoni was riding a 2012 BMW K1600 GTL motorcycle eastbound on I-75 when he drove off the right side of the interstate and struck a concrete support post beneath the Santa Barbara Boulevard overpass, the FHP reports.

Traveling east on I-75, the overpass is directly after the curve where the north-south interstate turns east to traverse the state as Alligator Alley.
