A motorcyclist who died after a collision with an SUV in Port St. Lucie has been identified.

23-year-old Corey Martinez was on a 2011 Kawasaki heading east on SW St. Lucie West Boulevard around 5:40 p.m. when he collided with a Honda Pilot driven by Terrance Brown, 58, who was westbound and turning south on SW California Boulevard, according to police.
