An Aiken man died Sunday when the motorcycle he was riding struck a pickup on Silver Bluff Road.

Aiken Coroner Tim Carlton identified the victim as Keith Charles Grubbs, 29, and said he was pronounced dead at Georgia Regents Medical Center at 6 p.m.

Carlton said Grubbs was riding a 2001 Suzuki GSXR 750 motorcycle at high speed when he hit a Ford F-250, which was turning left on Herndon Dairy Road.

A witness said the motorcycle was going in excess of 100 mph. Alcohol is considered to be a contributing factor along with excessive speed, the coroner said, and toxicology tests are pending.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

Accident

Our family lives at the scene of this horrible accident. I want the family of the man killed to know that there was someone with him until the ambulance came. He was not alone. I am praying for your family and we cried alot yesterday because it felt like we lost one of our own children. Our sympathy goes out to your family and the family of the driver of the truck that was struck.
