COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

We now know the name of a motorcycle driver killed in a crash Monday night on Interstate 126.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts identified 32-year-old Jason Wood of Columbia as the man killed in the crash. Wood died at the scene.

The crash shut down both directions of Interstate 126 between Greystone Boulevard and Colonial Life Boulevard Monday night.

Watts said Woods was riding his motorcycle toward Columbia when he lost control and hit a vehicle. The impact tossed Woods into the westbound lane where several vehicles hit him.

The crash occurred at about 9:10  p.m. and shut down the highway for several hours while Columbia Police officers conducted their investigation.

The crash remains under investigation.
