Crash In Sumter Kills Two And Injures One


By Eric Weisfeld

SUMTER, S.C. (AP) Two men have died and a third has been flown to a Columbia hospital after a truck rolled over and ignited in flames in Sumter County.
Emergency responders found one man apparently thrown from the vehicle who was declared dead at the scene.
Coroner Harvin Bullock said a second man appeared to have been trapped in the backseat. He also was pronounced dead at the scene.
A third man found walking around the wreck was airlifted to a Columbia hospital. His condition is not known.
Bullock says he doesn't know which person was the driver, the names of the individuals, nor the exact cause of the wreck.
The coroner said he plans to conduct autopsies before declaring causes of deaths.
