The FHP said the man was driving a motorcycle ahead of a car and SUV.

The motorcyclist and car driver slowed to avoid aluminum debris in the roadway, but the SUV driver did not and struck the back of the car, troopers said.

The car then hit the motorcycle, ejecting the Port Orange man, who died at a hospital, according to an FHP report.

The car driver, a 60-year-old Port Orange man, and the SUV driver, a 25-year-old New Smyrna Beach woman, suffered minor injuries, the FHP report stated.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts and the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, according to the FHP report.

An investigation is ongoing.
