FLORENCE, S.C. -- A Florence County Sheriff’s deputy has died, one week after crashing his car while on the way to provide another deputy with backup.
The Florence Morning News reports that 23-year-old deputy Joseph Antwine crashed his 2009 Dodge Charger about 8:30 p.m. Nov. 22 near Johnsonville.

Another deputy in the single-vehicle crash was released from the hospital earlier in the week.
