Orangeburg County)- Authorities say one Cope woman is dead after a motorcycle accident on Cannon Bridge Road at about 1:15 Saturday morning.

Corporal Paul Brothers says two motorcycles were going southbound on the road, when the first had an electrical problem, and the second ran into the back of it. Brouthers says two people were on the first bike, 44-year-old William Sanders, of Cope, and the 47-year-old deceased female.

Troopers say two people were also on the second bike, 46-year-old Frank Taylor III and an unknown female. All were taken to the hospital, except the woman on the first bike, who died on the scene.

Brothers says the accident is still under investigation.

Two-motorcycle accident in Orangeburg kills one, injures three

Updated: Oct 4, 2007 12:12 AM EDT

ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS)- An early-morning motorcycle accident in Orangeburg County left one woman dead and three in the hospital.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says it happened on Cannon Bridge Road. That's near the town of Cope.

WIS News 10 caught up with a long lost friend of one of the drivers.

"It scares you a little bit. It makes you give second thoughts about riding," says Gary Swaboda.

Swaboda is dealing with the aftermath of Saturday morning's motorcycle accident -- one that hits especially close to home.

One of the people involved turns out to be an old friend.

"We all like bikes. We all like to ride," Swaboda told WIS News 10.

It happened in Orangeburg county on cannon bridge road just after 1:00am. The highway patrol says two motorcycles were traveling in the southbound lane. One was a '92 Harley-Davidson, driven by 44-year-old William Gregory sanders of cope.

The other, a '76 Harley, driven by frank Taylor iii of Orangeburg. Both were carrying female passengers.

The Highway Patrol says one of the motorcycles rear ended the other, causing all four passengers to fly off.

The highway patrol says the 47-year-old woman riding with sanders died.

While visiting the scene, Swaboda told us he used to work with sanders at Whitman mold, but hasn't seen him in five years.

"Good guy, fun guy, nice to be with, nice to work with," Swaboda said about his friend.

Swaboda says they both shared a love of bikes, and ironically Swaboda says he was going to buy the same Harley his friend wrecked Saturday morning.

"It does give you an eerie feeling, especially when you see all this," Swaboda said.

There's no word on the condition of the three survivors, and the accident remains under investigation by the highway patrol.

As for Swaboda, he plans to make a visit to the hospital to see an old buddy.

"All our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family and we're thinking about him," Swaboda said.

It does not mention if the riders were wearing safety gear. Any loss of life is a sorrow, but bikers need to wear protection. As that subject was delicately overlooked in the report it makes you wonder.

And to those of you who just can't seem to get me off of your pathetic salad tossing little minds, you should check the grill. Oh, and before any sarcastic comments are aimed in my direction....notice I am not saying this on any of your sites--just one I know you can see. Have a nice day.

Also, prayers to the families of those who were lost in the wreck.

I think there was a story about a man in Elgin being killed as a result of a motorcycle accident recently. Maybe that's what you saw. I'm sure everyone knows you didn't mean any harm.
