Florida motorcyclist gets hit by lightning and dies in crash

A motorcyclist died in Florida after he was struck by lightning and crashed on a major highway, authorities said.

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.

2. That seems so weird. A path to gound must have been found, guessing everything was pretty wet.

Sorry the guy died.

A funny thought popped into my head. Not sure if this is morbid or not, but....they say us California drivers don't know how to drive it rain.

4. I would have thought the tires would have helped ground him...

Perhaps it was being so close to all the frame work... I dunno.

I feel very sorry for you buddy. Taken out of this world suddenly in a flash of light. RIP
