A motorcyclist died in Florida after he was struck by lightning and crashed on a major highway, authorities said. An off-duty Virginia State Police trooper reportedly witnessed the lightning strike and the resulting crash.

The 45-year-old man was riding his motorcycle southbound on Interstate 95 in east-central Florida's Volusia County on Sunday afternoon when a lightning strike hit his helmet, causing him to veer off the roadway and crash. He didn't survive, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Sounds more like scene from one of those final destination movies.

Somewhere in Hollywood is a script writer saying “I wish that I had thought of that “.

Good chance that his brain boiled and exploded out of his skull from the heat. Morbid, I know, but lightning is pretty wicked stuff.

Actually most people survive lighting strikes. I think the crash is what done him in.
Golfer, Lee Trevino, was hit twice. I read that the 1st time he was hit the bolt lifted him off the ground sideways and dropped him.
I think it was Lee that said..."always hold a 1 iron in a lightning storm...even God can't hit a 1 iron."

Never tempt God...remember, he supposedly couldn't sink the Titanic either.

Interesting statement. I wonder if anyone else saw it?

Is it possible he was hit with a drone while driving on the highway with the cop as witness, sure

I mean, who knows what really happened?

He was probably just a high voltage guy to deserve such treatment, and karma...
