DARLINGTON, S.C. - Two Hartsville men died in a two-vehicle crash in Darlington County on Tuesday afternoon, authorities say.

The incident happened just after 5 pm at the intersection of West Old Camden Road and New Market Road, the SC Highway Patrol said.

The driver of one car and the passenger in another car were the fatal victims, officials said.

The incident happened when a 2012 Nissan heading North on Old Camden Road collided with a 2001 Volvo that was heading east on New Market Road, the SC Highway Patrol said.

The driver of the Volvo "disregarded a stop sign" at the intersection, the highway patrol said. A passenger in the Volvo, who was killed, was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle during the crash.

Steven Damico, age 62, who was in the Nissan and was wearing a seatbelt, died, said Darlington County Coroner Todd Hardee.

Dargan Glenn Brown, age 22, was the passenger in the Volvo who died, Hardee said.

This incident remains under investigation by the Darlington County Coroner’s Office and South Carolina Highway Patrol MAIT Team.
