The victim of a fatal wreck involving a motorcycle and pickup truck on Edgewood Drive Sunday morning has been identified as 29-year-old Eric Sutherland.
Troopers say Sutherland was traveling west on Edgewood Drive when he drove left of center and struck a pickup driver head-on who was traveling the opposite direction on Edgewood Drive.
Sutherland’s Facebook page indicates he was an employee of the Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated, in Piedmont, South Carolina.
One Facebook user sent her condolences:
“Julia Elizabeth Payne: Amy Leah Gilstrap i am so sorry baby. Eric Sutherland i cant believe you’re gone & so fast. The love amy has for you I’m sure you can feel past those pearly gates. I can’t believe this has happened. Your family & kids are in my prayers. Amy i love you.”
The coroner said the Sutherland was not wearing a helmet during the collision and suffered a fatal head injury. He succumbed to his injuries at the scene.
Our thoughts and prayers are with family and friends at this difficult time.
Was it a drug-smuggling ring or a shipment of a top secret ingredient? Workers at a Coca-Cola factory in southern France this week discovered $56 million of cocaine in a shipment.

Diet Coke’s new ad campaign is drawing fierce backlash after featuring the tagline “you’re on,” as in, “You’re On Coke!” These two little words are drawing sharp criticism for appearing to reference drugs. But the company says what they really meant, was something totally different..
“Diet Coke in no way endorses or supports the use of any illegal substance,” a statement from the company reads. Instead, “you’re on” is meant to remind young achievers that “Diet Coke is there to support them in the moments when they are at their best,” according to the statement. “Every single day, young people around the world experience ‘You’re On’ moments big and small.
