ORANGE COUNTY — A Kissimmee man on a motorcycle died Wednesday afternoon on International Drive in what witnesses told investigators was possibly a street-racing accident.
Gabrail Montanez, 28, was riding a 2005 Kawasaki motorcycle south on International Drive south of Central Florida Parkway about 4:45 p.m. Beside him, Christopher Jones, 27, of Orlando was riding a 2005 Yamaha.
Montanez tried to move left to pass a Ford pickup driven by 41-year-old Matthew Burns of Orlando but clipped the back of the truck, said Trooper Kim Miller, a Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman.
Montanez was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. He was not wearing a helmet.
Jones and Burns were not injured.
