BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Berkeley County Coroner’s Office released the identity of the driver killed in a crash that injured two others Wednesday in Moncks Corner.

Butler Mitchum, 44, of Summerville, was the driver of one of two vehicles involved in the crash and died at the scene, Coroner George Oliver said.

The crash happened at approximately 2:25 p.m. on Highway 17A near Mountain Pine Road, troopers said.

The Highway Patrol said a 1995 Ford pickup was traveling southbound while a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer was going north. They say the Trailblazer, driven by Mitchum, crossed the center median and struck the Ford.

EMS took the driver and passenger of the Ford to an area hospital.

Troopers say Mitchum was wearing a seatbelt, while the driver and passenger of the Ford were not wearing seatbelts.
