The South Carolina Highway Patrol released a report on a multi-vehicle crash near Cane Bay High School in the Summerville area. The wreck occurred in the 1800 block of State Road at about 5:35 a.m.
The SCHP says that a Honda Accord was eastbound when it crossed the center line. The car moved into the path of a dual-sport motorcycle, and the vehicles collided head-on. The motorcycle then careened into an eastbound Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, according to WCSC.
A 27-year-old man from Cane Bay was riding the motorcycle at the time of the crash. Although the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, the Berkeley County Coroner pronounced him dead at the scene.

Although the investigation into this particular accident is ongoing, state law allows the survivors of those that are wrongfully killed due to negligent conduct to seek redress in the state’s civil courts.
