A Lugoff man died after traveling up to 100 mph Sunday morning around 3 a.m.

Boyd Outlaw, 41,  was traveling South on Highway 1 and struck a concrete island near Springdale Drive, Camden. Outlaw was thrown from his 2002 Suzuki motorcycle several hundred feet into the air; he died at the scene from massive head injuries, Kershaw County Coroner Johnny Fellers said. Outlaw was not wearing a helmet, Fellers said.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office deputy noticed Outlaw was traveling about 85 mph on West Dekalb Street and Campbell Street, when he turned on his blue lights and tried to pursue Outlaw. Matthews said Outlaw did not stop, but sped up. The deputy was never able to catch up to Outlaw, however, Matthews said. It was unknown by the C-I’s press deadline if Outlaw had a criminal record.

South Carolina Highway Patrol Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) is investigating.
