Driver dies following head-on collision


One person died Tuesday due to injuries sustained in a Monday afternoon crash in Orangeburg County, according to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety.

DPS investigators say the accident happened Monday around 12:55 p.m. near the intersection of Highway 176 and Vance Road.

Officials say the driver of a 2004 Honda Civic made an improper pass and struck a Ford pick-up truck head on.

That driver, according to authorities, was airlifted to Palmetto Health Richland where the driver later died.

The driver of the pick-up truck suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol continues to investigate.
