Troopers with the SC Highway Patrol said the wreck happened at 8:46 a.m. at the intersection of Silver Lake Road and Dillard Road.

Coroner Rusty Clevenger said Tyler Warfield, 23, of Fountain Inn was riding the motorcycle and died at the scene.
"He was en route to work a shift at the Reidville Fire Department when the crash occurred," Clevenger said of Warfield.
Troopers said Warfield was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The pickup driver, a 29-year-old Wellford woman, was not hurt.
