FHP identifies motorcyclist who died in horrific crash

The Florida Highway Patrol on Sunday identified a man killed when he lost control of his motorcycle in Davie, struck a concrete wall and plunged about 40 feet into a canal.

Juannito Aflleje Diaz, 34, of Pensacola was on the ramp to the northbound Turnpike from westbound State Road 84 at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday when he failed to negotiate the curve, FHP said.

Diaz died at the scene.

Troopers are still investigating the cause of the crash.
