CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. - The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a serious crash in Charlotte County involving two motorcycles. 

The FHP says a 12-year-old Carl Dayen Eisen was driving the wrong way on Bryan Way, left the roadway and crashed his motorcycle.  FHP investigators say 49-year-old Paul Francis Ruleford was following behind Eisen and followed him into the ditch.
FHP investigators believe Ruleford's front tire clipped the rear tear of Eisen's bike causing Ruleford to be ejected from his motorcycle and he suffered critical injuries.  
Ruleford was not wearing a helmut.  The crash remains under investigation.
