Patient transported from Hwy 6 traffic collision scene in cardiac arrest earlier Thursday

Sharpe’s Hill, SC 08/26/2021 (Paul Kirby) – A collision that was called in as a vehicle versus a moped closed a portion of SC Highway 6 near Mimosa Drive early Thursday morning. The collision was reported between 5:30 and 5:45 a.m. in the 2600 block of Hwy. 6 in the Sharpe’s Hill community of Lexington County.

Lexington County's 911 Center originally dispatched equipment and first responders from the Lexington County Fire Service and Lexington EMS. They also notified the dispatch center for SC State Troopers from the SCHP.

The first arriving fire unit from the county’s Sharpe’s Hill Fire Station arrived quickly and reported that they had a moped down that was on fire. That was extinguished and the first responders began assessing and providing medical care for a person with serious injuries. At some point, that individual reportedly went into cardiac arrest and CPR was started.

When the EMS crew arrived, they took over the primary care of the patient and quickly transported that person to an area hospital in grave condition. A firefighter drove the ambulance in so that the EMS crew could focus all their attention on the patient’s care.

All of SC Hwy. 6 remained closed until after 7:00 a.m. as troopers began their investigation into the collision. No further details regarding the patient's condition or the cause of this incident is available at this point.

We will update this story if more information becomes available.
