Troopers said a Laurens man was charged with driving under the influence in a crash that killed a woman and injured two other people in Greenville County on May 19. 

The crash happened at 749 Princeton Hwy and Mountain Creek Road in Honea Path around 4:48 p.m. and the  roadway was blocked at the scene along US 76 near the Anderson County line.

Troopers said a driver in a 2013 Nissan minivan was traveling west on US 76 as the driver of a 1999 GMC Yukon SUV was traveling east along the same road.

According to troopers, the Yukon traveled left of center, striking the Nissan head on.

Our FOX Carolina crew at the scene reported seeing a pile of metal with a sheet over it, and a red vehicle overturned.

The driver of the minivan became entrapped, requiring mechanical extraction from the vehicle. The driver succumbed to injuries at the scene, and the passenger in the Nissan was injured and transported by EMS to Greenville Health System.

The coroner later identified the driver as 68-year-old Susan Carlson Burton of Anderson. Her cause of death was blunt force trauma.

The driver of the Yukon was also injured and was transported by EMS to Greenville Health System.

On May 30, troopers confirmed the surviving driver as Jason Edward Price. Price was arrested on May 24 and charged with felony DUI resulting in death.
