WOGX-TV says authorities confirmed the motorcyclist is a 45-year-old from Charlotte, North Carolina.
The highway patrol tweeted out a photo of the victim's burned and cracked helmet Sunday evening.
The motorcyclist was hit while traveling southbound on I-95 in Volusia County in the afternoon, according to Florida Highway Patrol. He told law enforcement that he saw a bolt of lightning strike the man's helmet a second before the deadly crash.
A witness said the lightning bolt hit the motorcyclist's helmet, causing the helmet to shatter and the driver to veer off the road.
