AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WFXG) - Aiken authorities have identified the victim of an overnight crash as 35-year-old Reginald Walker. Walker was pronounced dead at the hospital just after 3 a.m. on Sunday.
According to Coroner Tim Carlton, an Aiken Public Safety Officer saw Walker driving around 78 miles per hour along Richland Avenue. The officer followed Walker and clocked him again at the bottom of Kalmia Hill. At that point, Walker was reportedly traveling 100 miles per hour. The coroner says the officer lost sight of the motorcycle at this point, but Walker must have turned onto Hayne Avenue.
A crash site was found several minutes later near Park Avenue. It appears Walker lost control of the motorcycle in a very sharp curve. The Aiken County Coroner confirms the crash happened around 2:21 a.m. Investigators are awaiting toxicology results.
