GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Loved ones are mourning the loss of a man killed Friday night while pushing a broken down car across an Upstate bridge, the coroner said.

The coroner said the crash occurred at the intersection of J. Vern Smith Parkway (SC-80) and East Poinsett Street Extension.

The Greer Police Department was also called to investigate the crash.

Officers said the victim was pushing a disabled 1994 Nissan Sentra across the bridge on SC-80 when he was hit from behind by the driver of a 2013 Toyota Corolla. The person pushing the car was killed in the crash and police said a person believed to be steering the broken down car was transported to Spartanburg Regional with injuries.

The coroner later identified the victim pushing the car as 20-year-old Corey Blake Rabb of Fairview Lake Way in Simpsonville. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 8:30 p.m.

A GoFundMe page was created here to help the family with funeral expenses.

The case remains under investigation by the Greer Police Department and the coroner.

SC-80 was closed for at least three hours due to the crash.

Rabb's family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Brown-Oglesby Funeral Home of Seneca. A funeral service will be held Wednesday at Word of Life Church on W. Georgia Road.
