Thomas County - A South Georgia man dies a day after his motorcycle collides with a deer. Twenty-four-year-old Daryl Lombardi of Thomas County was driving South on Georgia Highway 3, in Thomas County Monday Morning.

Troopers believe a deer collided with the motorcycle, knocking off Lombardi's helmet. He was thrown more than 180 feet and died Tuesday morning as a result of head injuries.

Troopers never found the deer, but they found deer hair on the road and the helmet.
