GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Troopers are investigating a deadly crash on Haywood Road in Greenville Monday morning that claimed the life of an Upstate firefighter.

The crash happened near the intersection of Halton Road around 7:50 a.m.

According to troopers, the driver of a 2012 Honda motorcycle was struck by the driver of a GMC pickup truck, who was pulling out of a private driveway.

The coroner identified the motorcyclist as 28-year-old Adam Cory Shaver of Taylors. Shaver was reportedly wearing a helmet but succumbed to injuries at the scene.

Shaver suffered multi-body trauma, according to the coroner. His death has been ruled an accident.

The 26-year-old driver of the GMC truck, a Williamston resident, is charged with failure to yield, according to troopers.

The Lake Cunningham Fire Department confirmed Shaver worked part time with the department. Lt. Jonathan Anderson said the agency is "heartbroken over the loss of Adam."

"We're deeply saddened," he said. "We do ask that people remember the family in their prayers."

Below is the official statement Anderson released on behalf of the department:

We are deeply saddened and heartbroken over the loss of one of our brothers.  Adam loved to help others and to serve his community. He was extremely dedicated and will be greatly missed.  Please join us as we continue to offer prayers and support for Firefighter Shaver’s family.
