SALUDA -- Authorities say a 29-year-old man has been found dead and still in his seatbelt four days after crashing his pickup truck into a creek in Saluda County.
State troopers said the wreck was found Friday on Halfway Swamp Road in the northern part of the county. An investigation showed the pickup crashed around 7 a.m. Monday.
The Highway Patrol says the driver lost control, running off the left side of the road and into a sign. The pickup then hit a tree and overturned in the creek. The victim was trapped in the water when he was found.
The man's name has not been released.
