2 killed in Lexington County vehicle crash
Coroner Margaret Fisher has identified two individuals who died as a result of a motor vehicle collision that occurred in the 2900 block of Sharpes Hill Road. The crash occurred near Gaston at approximately 8 p.m., Tuesday.
According to Fisher, Gary W. McDonald, 60, and Henry Trey King, 20, both of Gaston, were pronounced dead at the scene due to injuries sustained in the collision.
McDonald and King, who were travelling in the same vehicle, were attempting to avoid a head-on collision with a vehicle that was passing others when they were struck in the side. The driver and three passengers from the other vehicle were transported to an area hospital; their conditions are unknown at this time.
Neither McDonald nor King were wearing seat belts when the collision occurred, said Fisher. The collision remains under investigation by the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
