LAURENS COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Laurens County Coroner's Office has identified the man killed in a collision along SC-308. 

Troopers said the crash happened on Fleming Mill Road Thursday at 2:12 p.m.

The coroner identified the victim as 29-year-old Wesley Chad Robinson of Laurens. According to the coroner's office, Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene and died from blunt force trauma to the chest. 

Troopers said a 1997 Mercury 4-door sedan and farm tractor were both traveling east along SC-308 when the sedan struck the tractor in the rear, causing it to overturn.

The driver of the sedan, identified as 34-year-old Tara Mahan, was charged with felony DUI resulting in death, driving under suspension and simple possession of marijuana.

After her bond hearing on Friday, the judge said he denied her bond based on the severity of the crime and her lengthy criminal history.
