Traffic fatality

One Columbia man is dead after his motorcycle struck a tree early Saturday in Greenwood.

Shawn Joseph Ancone, 30, died at the scene of his injuries, Chief Deputy Coroner Derrick Rash said.

About 3:20 a.m., a 2014 Harley-Davidson struck a tree that had fallen on Northside Drive near Terminal Road, Master Trooper Gary Miller with the Highway Patrol said.

Ancone, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from the bike, Miller said.

The Highway Patrol is investigating.
