The driver who died Friday morning after his 2013 Ford Mustang was broadsided as he turned onto Leesburg Road was identified Saturday as 29-year-old Sean R. Wooten of Gilbert.
The collision occurred at 8:35 a.m. the South Carolina Highway Patrol said.
Wooten was turning from Congress Road onto Leesburg Road when a 1998 Ford Taurus traveling on Leesburg Road ran into his side of the Mustang. His car ran off the road to the right and overturned in a ditch, the highway patrol said.
Both drivers were taken to Palmetto Health Richland Memorial Hospital where Wooten succumbed to his injuries which Richland County coroner Gary Watts described as blunt force trauma. The driver of the other vehicle suffered serious injuries, the highway patrol said.
