A 41-year-old man is dead after his motorcycle struck a tree in western York County Thursday night.
Lance Corporal Billy Elder of the S.C. Highway Patrol said the man was not wearing a helmet when his 1997 Honda motorcycle veered off the right side of California Road, striking a tree.
The accident occurred at 7:35 p.m. just short of a mile north of the City of York.
The man was transported to Piedmont Medical Center where he later succumbed to his injuries.
The man’s name was not immediately available. Elder said the incident remains under investigation.
