The crash happened early Friday near Maytown, which is south of Daytona Beach.

A truck that was traveling behind Garcia then struck the motorcycle and overturned into a ditch. The driver, 20-year-old Travis Larson, sustained minor injuries. Garcia was not hurt.

The motorcycle driver died at the scene.
