Traffic fatality

A 46-year-old driver from North Augusta died after rear-ending a tractor-trailer in McCormick County, according to the state Highway Patrol.

Glenn Landrum died at the scene of the wreck, McCormick County Coroner Faye Puckett said.

The crash happened at 4:02 p.m. Tuesday along S.C. Highway 28 near the road’s intersection with U.S. Highway 221/Clarks Hill Highway.

Landrum was in a northbound 2012 Dodge minivan when it struck the back of a 2018 Freightliner that was attempting to turn left onto U.S. 221, Master Trooper Mitchell Ridgeway said.

The 36-year-old trucker from Lincolnton, Georgia, in the Freightliner was uninjured, Ridgeway said.
