DUNNELLON, Fla. -

The Florida Highway Patrol says two motorcyclists died when their sport bikes left the road, went through a fence and ran into trees.
    
The crash happened late Saturday in Dunnellon but wasn't discovered until Sunday morning when Rainbow River State Park employees showed up for work.

The Ocala Star-Banner reported the impact scattered pieces of the motorcycles over several hundred yards.
    
Troopers say 22-year-old Justin Richard and 27-year-old Douglas Scott Keller were traveling at a "high rate of speed."
    
Sgt. Jamie Mulverhill told the newspaper there were no witnesses so troopers had to piece together details of the crash.
