A Gaston motorcyclist died Sunday from injuries he received in an accident two days earlier.
Jonathan R. Sturkie, 35, was speeding on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle Friday on S.C. 302 just past the Columbia Metropolitan Airport runway flyover in South Congaree when he lost control, a report from the Lexington County coroners office said. Sturkie suffered head and body trauma when he fell off the motorcycle.
He was taken to Lexington Medical Center where he died of his injuries, the coroner said. The accident is under investigation by the S.C. Highway Patrol and the Lexington County Sheriffs Department.
