A South Carolina trooper who authorities say was responding to another wreck without his emergency lights or siren on has been involved in a fatal wreck.
Investigators told multiple media outlets that trooper Eugene "Buck" Kennington was heading north on U.S. 521 north of Lancaster around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday when his cruiser struck a minivan trying to turn on to the highway.
A passenger in the van, 81-year-old Laxiben Patel of Lancaster, was killed in the crash.
Lancaster County deputies are investigating the wreck because it involved a trooper. They say it may be weeks before they can release their findings.
