 CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A 20-year-old Cape Coral woman is dead after a motorcycle crash in Bonita Springs.

It happened Sunday afternoon at the intersection of Imperial Parkway and Waterfall Drive.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office says Elizabeth Perez was driving a 2004 Honda motorcycle when she lost control of the bike going around the curve. She struck the median and was ejected.

Fox 4 spoke to one of Perez's close friends who is currently serving overseas in Afghanistan.

He says Perez has been a huge support system for him during his deployment.

"She's that smiling face that you go to when you have a bad day," SPC Justin Batdorf said. 

"She's the type of person that, I have thousands of messages just between her and I, just because I have had a bad day and I need help or I have a question.

We had this huge ride planned out for when I get home."

Friends say they are planning a memorial motorcycle ride for Perez.
