The witness spotted the victim just before 1 p.m. Thursday on U.S. 1, just north of Seminole Woods Parkway in Palm Coast.

Troopers believe the victim was northbound and lost control when the road curved.

The motorcycle hit a culvert and the victim was thrown into a ditch behind a barrier that was obscured by passing motorists, troopers said.

Troopers say they know who the victim is but are still working to notify next of kin.
