Aiken Motorcyclist Killed after Loosing Control

web posted August 30, 2014

AIKEN A 55-year-old Aiken man was pronounced dead on the scene of an early afternoon motorcycle crash on Gun Range Road in Aiken, SC. The single vehicle crash took place just before 1 pm Friday, Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said in a release. The driver of the motorcycle has been identified as Willis L. Purvis of Aiken.

Mr. Purvis was returning home on his 2007 D1000 Suzuki motorcycle when for unknown reasons he braked hard, lost control of the vehicle, and was ejected. Mr. Purvis was described as an "experienced" motorcyclist by a friend.

He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. He died from multiple body trauma.

Toxicology is pending. His death and the crash are being investigated by the Coroner's Office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
