Hair came to final rest on his stomach facing a westerly direction in between the point of impact and the motorcycle where he expired on scene from injuries received in this crash. The exact time of this crash is unknown due to a lack of witness's and the time and is based upon an estimate from the Highlands County Paramedics on scene. He was wearing a helmet.
