South Carolina Highway Patrol reports that a woman died in a car wreck just before 6 a.m. on Saturday.
The accident happened on U.S. 76 and Belton Highway, east of Anderson.
Troopers said one car drove east on the highway as the second car drove west. They said the second car crossed into oncoming traffic and hit the first car.
The driver of the first car was taken the Anderson Medical Center with injuries.
The second driver died on the scene from head and chest injuries, according to coroner Charles Bozeman. He identified her as 41-year-old Jacqueline Mullins.
