May 24, 2011 2:22:00 PM - thestate.com
A 30-year-old Cope man was killed in a wreck this morning near Eastover in a head-on collision with a trash truck.

The victim, identified by Richland County Coroner Gary Watts as Corey A. Hiott, was driving an S10 Chevrolet pickup west on Old Eastover Road about a mile east of Eastover at the time of the wreck, S.C. Highway Patrol Cpl. Bryant McDougald said.

Around 7:30 a.m., the truck crossed the center line for unknown reasons and collided with a trash struck driven by Robert L. Kitt, 47, of Columbia, McDougald said. The truck belonged to Allied Waste Services of West Columbia.

Despite wearing a seat belt, Hiott was fatally injured, Watt said.

The highway patrol plans to reconstruct the wreck as part of its investigation.
