March 19, 2019

An Aiken man died Monday following a motorcycle crash he was involved in last week.

Allen Widener, 55, was pronounced dead from blunt force injuries at Augusta University Medical Center, according to Aiken County Chief Deputy Coroner Darryl Ables.

On the morning of March 14, Widener was riding his motorcycle east down Beaver Dam Road. Widener did not stop for a stop sign on Cooks Bridge Road, and as he crossed he ran off the right side and hit an embankment, Ables said.

Widener’s daughter, Rebecca Price, was riding with him. Price was taken to a hospital in serious condition, according to Ables.

Neither was wearing a helmet, the chief deputy coroner continued.

S.C. Highway Patrol is still investigating the incident.
