Elderly man dies in single motorcycle crash

AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

An elderly man died in a single motorcycle accident in Aiken County late Thursday night.

According to the Aiken County coroner Tim Carlton, Marlyn Whetstone of Salley was driving a Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic motorcycle when he appeared to lose control of it.

Authorities believe Whetstone was possibly attempting to avoid something leaving the road on the right shoulder of the road. Carlton said evidence appears to show that he was trying to get the motorcycle back onto the road when it overturned.

Carlton said Whetstone died from multiple body trauma. The accident is currently being investigated by the South Carolina Highway Patrol and the Aiken County Coroner's Office.
