SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

The Dorchester County Coroner's Office has identified a man who was killed in an accident involving a motorcycle Friday morning on Old Trolley Road.

Coroner Christopher Nisbet said 59-year-old Ronald Wayne Stewart of Summerville died of massive head trauma and multiple extremity fractures. Nisbet said Wayne was not wearing a helmet.

According to Nisbet, Wayne was on his way to work which was a mile from the accident scene.
