A resident from Lancaster County, South Carolina, passed away last month due to a motorcycle accident that had occurred earlier in the month. The victim clung onto life for about a week, before she finally perished.
According to the reports, the motorcycle accident occurred on S.C. 5, around 4:45 p.m. The victim was riding a 1997 Kawasaki motorcycle westward on S.C. 5, about 12 miles north of the Lancaster county line. The collision occurred when a vehicle traveling east on S.C.5 turned left onto Steel Hill Road, and immediately collided with the victim’s motorcycle. Subsequently, the victim was airlifted to a hospital in Charlotte.
