The Greenville County coroner confirms a motorcyclist was killed after a collision with a truck early Saturday morning.

The coroner said the driver on the motorcycle, 36-year-old Asa Jackson Lake of Piedmont, was traveling on Piedmont Highway when he struck a 1999 Chevrolet pick up truck around 12:30 a.m.

EMS responded to the scene and transported Lake to GHS where he was later pronounced dead at 1:51 a.m.

Per an exam by the coroner, Lake died of blunt force trauma, the manner of death being an accident.

Troopers say Lake was wearing a helmet during the collision and was ejected from the motorcycle upon impact.

They said the driver in the pickup truck was crossing Piedmont Highway from Davis Road when Lake, who was traveling east on Piedmont Highway, struck the pick up truck on the left rear.

Neither the driver nor passenger in the pickup truck were injured. Both were wearing seat belts, troopers say.

No charges have been filed.

This case is still under investigation by the Greenville County Coroner's Office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
