DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities say a 28-year-old man died after a truck attempted to make a U-turn on a highway in St. George Tuesday afternoon.

Dorchester County Coroner Christopher Nisbet said Wesley Adam Hughes of Bowman died of a head injury following an accident on Highway 178 and Quail Run Road around 11:19 a.m.

Authorities say a truck driver was heading west on Highway 178 when he saw a white truck stop in the eastbound lane, back up and attempt to make a U-turn in front of him.

The truck driver said he hit the brakes and blew his horn but could not avoid hitting the passenger side of the vehicle.
