Struck By Incidents

(SC)(1-3-2021) COLLETON COUNTY - Civilian dies after car hits firetruck at crash scene on I-95

A vehicle traveling northbound on I-95 around 11:30 p.m. on January 2 struck the rear of a parked firetruck that was assisting another vehicle in the median. Both vehicles received heavy damage and the car caught fire. Engine 26 was still running, so firefighters engaged the pump and deployed one handline to extinguish the fire. Crews worked to extract the driver of the Nissan from the vehicle using rescue tools. The victim suffered multiple traumatic injuries and died at the scene. Troopers say he was not wearing a seatbelt. No Fire-Rescue personnel were injured and the Engine prevented the vehicle from striking the initial crash victims and the wrecker crew on scene.
