Mo-ped driver killed in collision with truck

Jun 13, 2010 6:07:00 PM - thestate.com
A 49-year-old Irmo man driving a mo-ped was killed about 10:30 a.m. Sunday when he struck a Ford pickup near the Lake Murray dam.

Bruce McLaughlin was pronounced dead at the scene in the 2300 block of North Lake Drive/S.C. 6 about a mile north of the dam, Lexington County Coroner Harry Harman said.

The pickup driver, Alex Huffstetler, 43, of Chapin, was wearing a seat belt and not injured, according to the S.C. Highway Patrol.

A preliminary investigation showed McLaughlin was headed east on S.C. 6 when he crossed the center line into Huffstetler’s oncoming truck, a trooper said.

An autopsy on McLaughlin has been scheduled.
