CAMDEN, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a motorcyclist traveling at speeds of more than 100 mph died in a crash near Camden as he fled Kershaw County deputies.

Kershaw County coroner Johnny Fellers told The State newspaper ( that the man killed is 41-year-old Boyd Outlaw, who lived in the Camden area.

Fellers say the motorcyclist was "doing triple digits" when the accident occurred as Outlaw fled authorities.
