CAMDEN, SC — A woman who died driving a mo-ped in Kershaw County might have been on her cell phone when she crashed into an oncoming pickup truck shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday, Kershaw County coroner Johnny Fellers said Wednesday.
The woman died at the scene and was not wearing a protective helmet, SC Highway Patrol Trooper Lance Cpl. Brent Kelly said.
Fellers identified the woman as Carolyn Morrison, 57, of Camden.
We found her cell phone open, Fellers said. She was calling somebody about the same time this accident happened.
Kelly said the incident happened on Brewer Springs Road near Williams Road when the mo-ped drifted over the center line in the road and collided with an oncoming 1990 Ford pickup, Kelly said.
The pickup truck driver was not injured, Kelly said.
