NEAR JAMESTOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a crash that killed one driver and injured a second one early Tuesday morning.

The crash happened at approximately 5 a.m. on S.C. Highway 41 near Farewell Corner Road, approximately three miles south of Jamestown, according to Lance Cpl. Tyler Tidwell.

Troopers say a 2009 Chevy Cobalt was traveling north on S.C. 41 when it crossed the center line and struck a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado that was traveling south head-on.
