A tragic accident in Aiken County, SC on Sunday, February 28, left a motorcyclist dead after a collision with a Buick.
Officials say the accident happened on Williston Road in Beech Island, around 1 PM. Daniel W. Fenn, 47, of Warrenville, was heading east on Williston Road on a 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle. A 2010 Buick 4-door turned off Woodcrest Place into the bike’s path, causing the motorcycle to crash into the front driver area of the SUV. Sadly, Fenn died at the scene as the result of blunt force trauma from the crash.
Motorcycle crashes often result in death or serious injury. As with other accidents, there are many possible contributing factors, including speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving, or failing to obey traffic laws. However, another vehicle turning in front of the motorcycle is unfortunately a common situation. Frequently the driver who turns in front of the bike says they just didn’t see it. This can happen easily because of a motorcycle’s relatively small size, so motorists are encouraged to always “look twice and save a life” before turning.
