A weekend traffic accident has claimed the life of a Kansas Man.  Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis says 33 year old Frank Travis Yoho of LeRoy, Kansas, was found dead around 1 pm Saturday afternoon.  Coroner Addis says it appears he was traveling North on SC 130 when his motorcycle ran off the right side of the road in a curve and hit a pine tree.  The victim was not wearing a helmet. Authorities believe the accident happened Friday night. He was found by a female friend and her son who had been searching for him after he failed to show up Friday night. The man was working with a construction company at the Michelin site in Anderson. Addis says he died of blunt force trauma to the head and neck, and was not wearing a helmet.
