COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – A Hardeeville woman was killed, and another person was injured Sunday afternoon following a high-speed crash with entrapment on I-95.

Master Trooper Brandon Bolt with the South Carolina Highway Patrol said a 2015 GMC pickup truck was traveling south on the interstate when the crash happened around 3:00 p.m.

Trooper Bolt said the truck ran off the left side of the road near mile marker 42 – about 10 miles south of Walterboro – and struck a tree.

The 56-year-old driver told first responders that he swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle. He was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A female passenger was trapped in the vehicle and officials with Colleton County Fire Rescue said that a large pine tree was pushed into the dash. The woman suffered multiple traumatic injuries and died at the scene.

“Once their investigation was completed, Firefighter-Paramedics used Holmatro Hydraulic Rescue Tools to extricate the passenger. Both passenger side doors, the “B” post, and a portion of the dash were removed to free the victim,” officials said.

The SC Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
