CAMDEN, S.C. — Authorities say a motorcyclist traveling at speeds of more than 100 mph died in a crash near Camden as he fled Kershaw County deputies.
Kershaw County coroner Johnny Fellers told The State newspaper that the man killed is 41-year-old Boyd Outlaw, who lived in the Camden area.
Fellers say the motorcyclist was “doing triple digits” when the accident occurred as Outlaw fled authorities.
The S.C. Highway Patrol says Outlaw wasn’t wearing a helmet when his motorcycle stuck a concrete island in the middle of U.S. 1 near a shopping center about 3 a.m. Sunday.
Kershaw Sheriff Jim Matthews said Sunday morning he’s still gathering details on the wreck.
