A man is dead after fleeing Aiken County deputies over the weekend.

It began early Saturday morning when a deputy tried to pull over a motorcycle on East Pine Log Road near Trail Wood Drive in Aiken. Authorities say Arthur Page accelerated and a pursuit continued for several miles onto eastbound I-20 where Page reportedly lost control of the bike. Deputies say shots were fired during a confrontation and Page was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy is planned today in Newberry.
