COWPENS, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A driver died on Thursday, more than a week after a crash on Interstate 85 in Spartanburg County.

Troopers said a tractor-trailer ran off the roadway near the 83 mile marker on Oct. 26 and struck a concrete wall.

The collision caused the rear trailer axle to become dislodged and it crossed the median barrier, striking a 2013 Toyota sedan.

The driver of the sedan, who was identified as 49-year-old Larry L. Thomas of Glen Allen, Virginia, was injured and transported to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. Thomas passed away in the hospital early Thursday morning.
