Motorcyclist critically injured in Colleton Co. crash


A Cottageville man was critically injured during a motorcycle crash on Sunday, authorities say.

Colleton County Fire and Rescue Chief Barry McRoy said the accident happened at the intersection of Pierce Road and McDanieltown Road a little before 6 p.m.

McRoy said the 50-year-old motorcyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, apparently lost control and rolled his bike several times.

When paramedics arrived on scene, he was unconscious and suffering from multiple traumatic injuries, McRoy said.

A helicopter was called to the scene and the man was airlifted to the Trauma Center at the Medical University of South Carolina.

South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
