Florida man killed in wreck on Interstate 95 in SC

MANNING, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a Clearwater, Fla., man is dead after his wife lost control of their minivan on Interstate 95 in South Carolina.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says Mary and Bobby Lee West were driving through Clarendon County at around 2:15 p.m. Saturday when Mary West lost control of the couple's Dodge Caravan.

Deputies say she went off the left side of the road then came back on the highway before flipping several times.

Coroner Hayes Samuels Jr. says 61-year-old Bobby Lee West was pronounced dead at the scene. Mary West was airlifted to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities are still investigating.
