One man died and two people were taken to the hospital following a two vehicle crash in Georgetown County, according to the S.C. Highway Patrol.
A 2002 Buick traveling on Jacobs Avenue came to a halt at a stop sign at the intersection with U.S. 701, but failed to yield before turning onto the highway and was hit by a 2003 Yukon traveling south, said Brent Kelly with highway patrol.
The crash occurred about 5:55 p.m.
The passenger in the Buick, a 65 year old Georgetown man, died in the crash, Kelly said. The man has not been identified by the Georgetown County Coroners office, and Kelly said he was not wearing a seatbelt when the cars wrecked.
A 45-year-old man driving the Buick was transported to the Medical University of South Carolina, Kelly said. His condition is not known.
One person from the Yukon sustained minor injuries and was transported to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center, Kelly said. The driver and a second passenger did not have any injuries.
