A Sumter County truck driver died in a Thursday morning collision with a car in Sumter County.
The 35-year-old man was driving his Volvo tractor-trailer south on St. Paul Church Road around 7:25 a.m. when the truck collided with a Saturn Vue turning left onto St. Paul Church Road from McCrays Mill Road.
The Saturn driver, Monica Beck, 25, also of Sumter, was taken by ambulance to Tuomey Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, S.C. Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Judd Jones said. She was wearing her seat belt, he said.
The truck hit Beck's car on the right front, then went out of control, jack-knifed and hit a tree, Jones said.
The truck driver was wearing a seat belt but suffered fatal injuries at the scene, he said.
