The driver, 71-year-old Walter Wells “Blackie” Collins of North, was pronounced dead at the scene by Lexington County Coroner Harry Harman. No other vehicles were involved and Collins was wearing his helmet. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death, Jones said.
Collins, Patch has learned, was a world-renowned knife maker.
