One dead in Friday morning crash in Lexington County

Hollow Creek, SC 06/11/2022 (Paul Kirby) – One person has died following a head on collision that occurred on US Hwy. 378 northwest of Lexington Friday morning. According to Master Trooper David Jones of the SCHP, the crash occurred at about 11:10 a.m. near the intersection of Hwy 378 and Lake Village Road.

Jones said in a statement Saturday that a 1989 Peterbilt tractor trailer truck was travelling west toward Saluda on Hwy 378 when a 2001 Ford Ranger that was travelling east toward Lexington crossed the center line and struck the larger truck head on. The driver of the Peterbilt was not injured however, the driver of the Ranger received life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local trauma center. The front seat passenger of the Ranger was also seriously injured in the collision and was taken to a medical center where that individual later died.

Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher has not yet released the identity of the decedent. This crash remains under investigation by the SCHP.
