St. Stephen man killed in fiery wreck in Berkeley County

A St. Stephen man was killed in a fiery wreck in Berkeley County Thursday night, S.C. Highway Patrol troopers report.

The wreck occurred about 9:40 p.m. on Mudville Road near U.S. Highway 176, Senior Trooper Bridget Wyant said.

A 2004 Crown Victoria headed north on the road crossed over the center lane, spun sideways and was struck in the passenger side door by a 2001 Ford pickup, Wyant said.

The Crown Victoria then ran into a ditch and caught fire, Wyant said. That vehicle’s driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Berkeley County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased driver as 34-year-old Quincy President of St. Stephen.

President died from thermal burns received in the wreck, according to the Coroner’s Office.

Paramedics transported the pickup’s driver, a 45-year-old Summerville man, to Summerville Medical Center to be treated for injuries sustained in the wreck, Wyant said. That person was wearing a seat belt when the wreck occurred.
