GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Bystanders tried to help save a Spartanburg motorcyclist who later died after a crash in Greenville on Sunday, according to the coroner.

Greenville County Coroner Barry Wright said 48-year-old Daryll Faircloth was cut bad on the neck in a two-vehicle crash Sunday at 9:41 p.m.

Bystanders started CPR on Faircloth before paramedics took him to the hospital as he suffered traumatic cardiac arrest, Wright said.

Troopers said an SUV was headed north on Highway 253 when the driver pulled out in front of Faircloth, who was headed east on Highway 290 in Greenville County.

The driver of the SUV was not injured, troopers said.

Wright said he has not yet determined Faircloth's cause of death, but he said it could have been from loss of blood because of the cut.

The Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
