The Sumter County Coroner’s Office has identified a motorcyclist who was killed in a collision on Boulevard Road.
The accident occurred shortly after 6 p.m. in the City of Sumter.
Officials say a 2004 Suzuki GSX-R750 and a 2012 Toyota Corolla were both traveling east on Boulevard Road when the Suzuki attempted to pass the Toyota on the left.
As the Suzuki attempted to pass, the Toyota made a left turn onto Ridgeway Street. The Suzuki then struck the driver’s side door of the Toyota.
The motorcyclist, 31-year-old Marquies Tomlin, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Officials say he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
An autopsy for Tomlin will be performed on Tuesday at The Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
