Richland County Coroner Gary Watts has released the name of the motorcyclist who died Saturday night after a wreck in Lower Richland County.
The coroner says John Sparrow of Hopkins did not survive his injuries when an oncoming vehicle pulled in front of him about 8:30 p.m. at Hallbrook Road and Burdell Drive.
Watts says Sparrow was not wearing a helmet. He would have turned 49 next Monday.
The driver of the vehicle, 26-year-old Troy Wilson (pictured), has been arrested on a variety of charges including felony DUI involving a death and hit-and-run involving death.
The Highway Patrol says Wilson left the scene and was arrested when he later returned.
