PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) The South Caroling Highway Patrol says a motorcyclist passed away after a late night collision in the Piedmont area. 

Troopers say the incident occurred along SC-86 near I-85 around 11:15 p.m. 

They said a 2001 GMC Sierra carrying two people was traveling west on the roadway when they struck a 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle that had pulled out in front of them. 

Troopers say the motorcyclist failed to yield right of way and was attempting to make a turn in the northbound direction, to get on the I-85 on-ramp. 

The motorcyclist was transported to Prisma Health in Greenville, and unfortunately succumbed to their injuries. The Anderson County Coroner's Office says 54-year-old Randall Lee Cole of Donaldson passed away at 1:38 a.m.  

Neither of the occupants in the GMC were injured.
