From http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_div=3&u_hdg=0&u_sid=168469 :

It appeared the lightning entered Scotese's head and exited his groin. His plastic and Styrofoam helmet lay in pieces near the trail.

May he rest in peace.

So much for the insulating value of plastic...

As slow as lightning is, I am rather surprised that it would go for a weak moving target.

Apparently the 46-year-old man died of brain injury rather than heart fibrillation as is more common with electrocutions.
