A Sumter woman died Monday, two days after being involved in a two-vehicle collision.
Aline Rucker Rhame, 87, died in a Columbia hospital where she had been taken following Saturday’s collision, according to Sumter Police Department Public information officer Tonyia M. McGirt.
Rhame was driving her 2002 Cadillac at about 12:45 p.m. on U.S. 401/Oswego Highway when the incident occurred, McGirt said. Rhame was stopped in the northbound lane while waiting to make a left turn when her Cadillac was struck in the rear by a 1996 Buick.
Willie N. Rembert, 74, also of Sumter, was the other driver, according to McGirt, adding Rembert is expected to be charged with driving too fast for conditions.
