A 29-year old has died following a motorcycle crash in Columbia this weekend. The Columbia Police Department said Brandon E. Bainter lost control of his motorcycle early Sunday morning. He was traveling on Broadway toward Westwood Avenue when he went off the left side of the road. The motorcycle then hit a utility pole.

He was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said excessive speed is believed to be a factor.
