His body was thrown from the motorcycle over an embankment and landed almost 350 feet in a yard below. The motorcycle continued down the highway for another 350-400 feet. It was a particularly gruesome accident as the victim’s legs were missing after the impact. Investigators state that the victim certainly died upon impact; however, they are still investigating the cause of the motorcycle accident and will be interviewing witnesses from the scene.
