CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County coroner says a Goose Creek man was killed early Thursday morning in a crash on I-26.
Paul Kline, 43, died at the scene of the crash at approximately 5:56 a.m. from injuries he suffered in the crash, Coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal said. Kline was the driver of a motorcycle, O’Neal said.
The crash happened around 5:43 a.m. near mile marker 211, about a mile from the merge with I-526, Lance Cpl. Nick Pye said. The crash closed eastbound lanes of the interstate, snarling traffic for several hours.
Pye said a 2016 Ford pickup truck and a 2002 Yamaha motorcycle were traveling on I-26 when they collided. The driver of the truck was not injured in the crash, Pye said.
