Troopers said the accident happened around 6 p.m. on I-77 south near mile marker 47.
The Patrol says a Harley-Davidson motorcycle was traveling south on I-77 in the right lane behind a Chevrolet Avalanche. The Chevrolet began stopping due to heavy traffic ahead but the motorcyclist didn’t slow down, collided with the back of the Chrevrolet and overturned.
Eric Lamont Overcash, 58, died at the scene.
The 16-year old driver of the Chevy was not injured.
