York County Coroner Sabrina Gast identified the motorcyclist as Michael “Andy” Shuford, 38, of Hickory Grove.
The 17-year-old was driving a 2009 Chevy SUV and wasn't injured, Sutherland said.
The two vehicles collided at about 5:30 p.m. Friday, Sutherland said.
The accident is still under investigation by the S.C. Highway Patrol. Toxicology testing will be conducted, and results can take several weeks, Gast said.
