An Orangeburg man has died after a wreck on Interstate 26 in Orangeburg County.
The 68-year-old man, whose identity was not immediately available, was driving a GMC pickup on the interstate around 11:40 a.m. Thursday when the truck left the westbound lanes around mile marker 159 and crossed the median, S.C. Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Judd Jones said.
An eastbound driver, James West, 32, of Wagoner, tried to avoid the GMC but the two vehicles crashed in the median, Jones said. West's Ford pickup overturned, but he was not injured in the wreck.
The driver of the GMC died at the scene from his injuries, Jones said.
