Troopers said one person has died after a tractor trailer and a sedan collided on Liberty Highway in Anderson County Monday morning.
Coroner Greg Shore said the crash occurred just before 8 a.m. near Ladies Lane. Shore said he was initially told that two tractor trailers had been involved.
Troopers said a 2003 Ford sedan crossed the center line and struck the tractor trailer.
The driver, a 35-year-old from Belton, became entrapped and had to be extricated from the vehicle. The driver died at the scene. He was identified as 35-year-old Colton Kenneth Chitwood of Belton.
Chitwood suffered blunt force trauma and head trauma, the coroner said.
A passenger in the car, a 30-year-old Pendleton woman, survived the crash.
The roadway was blocked after the crash. All lanes reopened around noon.
