One man died as the result of a collision on Thursday afternoon. The collision occurred at about 2:15 p.m. near the intersection of Hwy. 72/221 and the 72 Bypass.

According to Greenwood County Coroner Sonny Cox, 76-year old Willie C. Smith of Mountville died from blunt force trauma to his chest as a result of the collision. Cox said the death has been ruled accidental.

According to Lance Cpl. Tony Keller of SCHP, Smith struck the rear of an 18-wheeler that was stopped on the southbound side of Hwy. 72/221 about the intersection of the 72 Bypass. Keller said that Smith was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the collision.

Smith was transported to Self Regional Healthcare by Greenwood County EMS, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
