— A Summerton man died of a heart attack after wrecking his logging truck Wednesday morning in Richland County, according to the coroner’s office.

Louis F. Grabowski, 48, crashed his logging truck into a Honda subcompact car on McCords Ferry Road in Richland County about 11 a.m. Wednesday, Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said. Both Grabowski and the Honda’s driver were able to safely get out of the cars, which caught fire as a result of the wreck, but the 48-year-old had a heart attack and died at the scene.

The wreck occurred after Gravowski’s truck struck a barrier on the right side of the road, overcorrected and overturned into the left lane, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol. The Honda’s driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
