Colleton County crash claims life

One man was killed this afternoon in a single-car wreck along Green Pond Highway, north of Ritter in Colleton County.

Steven Pinckney, 28, of Walterboro was driving a 1980s Mustang when he went off the road around 4 p.m., Colleton County Fire and Rescue Director Barry McRoy said.

The car hit a culvert, went airborne and then flipped over onto its roof, McRoy said. Pinckney, who was not wearing a seat belt, was trapped inside the car and died, he said.

The wreck is being investigated by the S.C. Highway Patrol.
