Former Lexington County Councilman Ned Tolar died at Lexington Medical Center Sunday. He was a businessman and he represented West Columbia and part of Lexington – District 8 – while on council. Tolar left council in 2018, replaced by Glen Conwell.
Tolar was in a serious auto accident in November of 2016, and never completely recovered, according to family friend.
Tolar was turning left at the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Old Cherokee Road in Lexington. His car was hit on the driver’s side by another vehicle.
Tolar suffered three broken vertebra and damage the loss of one of his kidneys. He had a cut that peeled back his scalp that took nine stitches to close, said his wife, Vicki Tolar, at the time of the accident. She said her husband had extensive bruising on his body, too.
He is survived by his wife, Vicki.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
