The collision took place at 4:49 p.m.

The driver in the Hyundai SUV was injured, entrapped and had to be mechanically extracted and airlifted to Spartanburg Regional. No word on the extent of the driver's injuries.

Per the coroner, the driver in the Chevrolet pick-up was trapped in the vehicle for a short time and had to be mechanically extracted by EMS and fire crews. He was transported to Mary Black Health System Gaffney where he died in the emergency department at 6:11 p.m.

The victim was identified as Danny Kent Queen, 78 of Gaffney.

An autopsy will be performed Tuesday.
