LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Police have identified the victim of a multiple-vehicle crash Saturday that forced the Edison Bridge to be shut down for several hours.

Police say 19-year-old Ryan Schneider of North Fort Myers died in the crash.

Two other people were injured in the crash, which happened on the North Fort Myers approach to the Edison Bridge.

Police say Schneider caused the crash due to speeding and driving too fast for the conditions.

Schneider had recently moved to Florida from Pennsylvania three weeks ago.
