ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Alliance Parkway in Anderson County near Highway 81 was shut down Saturday evening while crews worked to clean up the scene of a fatal crash involving a motorcycle and a tractor-trailer.

Officials at the scene said the driver of the motorcycle died at the scene after he was pinned beneath the rear wheels of the truck's trailer.

The Anderson County deputy coroner Don McCown said 71-year-old Francis Duncan was the motorcyclist who died.

The Highway Patrol is investigating the crash, which was one of three fatal crashes in Anderson County this weekend.
