LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Lexington County officials have released the names of two men killed in a wreck earlier this week.

Coroner Harry Harman says 87-year-old Mieczyslaw Michae Butzich of Gilbert and 62-year-old Edward William Hartung Jr. of Batesburg-Leesville died in the collision Wednesday afternoon.

A woman was injured in the three-vehicle wreck on U.S. 378.

The woman's name and condition were not available. She was taken to Lexington Medical Center for treatment.
