This past weekend was much safer on South Carolina roads than the previous two weekends, but there were still at least three traffic deaths.
The weekend before last there were seven highway deaths and the weekend before that was the Memorial Day holiday weekend with 12 traffic fatalities.
The state Department of Public Safety says those who died this past weekend include a motorist, a motorcyclist and a pedestrian.
Officials say the motorist was wearing a seat belt.
But the Highway Patrol says the motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet.
Troopers say 68-year-old Robert Davis was riding along Camp Mac Boykin Road in Sumter County about 12:30 Saturday afternoon when his motorcycle went into an embankment. He died at the scene.
As of Sunday night, 291 people had died in South Carolina traffic mishaps so far this year, 82 less than at the same time last year.
