A motorcycle driver was killed and another driver was hurt in a crash Sunday in York County south of Rock Hill, troopers said.

The wreck happened around 5:20 p.m. on U.S. 21 near the intersection of Whispering Pines Road, said Sgt. Bill Rhyne with S.C. Highway Patrol.

The driver of a 1997 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was turning left onto U.S. 21 when the cycle collided with a 2010 sedan, Rhyne said.

York County Coroner Sabrina Gast identified the driver of the motorcycle as Wayne Cummins, 70, of Rock Hill.

Cummins was not wearing a helmet, Rhyne said.

The driver of the sedan, a Lancaster man, was injured and taken to Springs Memorial Hospital, Rhyne said.

The crash remains under investigation by S.C. Department of Public Safety.
