A West Columbia man died and two others were injured in a wreck in Cayce Friday.

Several witnesses said they saw the crash as it happened on Charleston Highway at Frink Street.

"I mean this is the second one in two years, you know, that I've witnessed myself," said Don Bradley.

For Bradley, it's a day he'll remember forever.

"I heard a bang! I looked out the window there, and I seen a car shooting down the road and truck stopped in the middle of the road there," Bradley said.

Cayce Department of Public Safety says a pick-up truck was traveling south on Charleston Highway around 2 p.m. when a car pulled on to the road.

They said the pick-up truck struck the car and spun it off the roadway.

When Bradley saw flames, he raced from his home to help.

"I don't know, I guess the Lord pushed me," Bradley said. "Preserve life, you know. That's what everybody should do, you know. That's the way I look at it."

Bradley said an older man and woman were trapped inside a burning sedan.

He pulled the woman out but he says the man was trapped.

"I got her drug out to safety," Bradley said. "I went back to try and get the old man, and I couldn't get him out of there."

Bradley said he cradled the lady for 30 minutes, comforting her, before she was taken by ambulance.

"I asked her to squeeze my hand if she could hear me, and she squeezed my hand, and it was pretty emotional," Bradley said. "I just did what I could to comfort her."

The man was finally freed by first responders and flown to the hospital.

"I hope Ms. Betty is fine," Bradley said. "I hope she's good. She told me her name was Betty."

On Saturday, Lexington County Chief Deputy Coroner Randy A. Martin identified the man who died as 56-year-old David Allen Glover.

Glover was transported to Palmetto Health Richland, where he died from the injuries he sustained in the accident, Martin said.

Cayce Dept. of Public Safety requested assistance from the Highway Patrol MAIT team that responded to the scene and is conducting an investigation.
