GREAT FALLS — A 55-year-old Great Falls man is dead following a motorcycle crash Thursday in Lancaster County.
The Highway Patrol says the motorcyclist was driving west on State Highway 97 just over a mile north of Great Falls about 7 p.m. when he veered over the center and crashed head-on into a 1999 Nissan heading the opposite direction.
The man, who was wearing a helmet, was thrown off his Harley Davidson. The road was blocked for about three and a half hours while troopers investigated the crash.
Five people have already died on South Carolina roads during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Last year three people died.
