Incident # 18-00187 – Two people were transported
following a high speed collision on I-95 near the 66 mile marker southbound
Saturday morning 06-January at 01:10. A southbound Chevrolet Cobalt collided
with the rear of southbound DOT snow plow. The snow plow received damage to
the sand spreading device, however the small car suffered heavy damage which
trapped the front seat passenger. The snow plow was able to pull into the
breakdown lane, while the Cobalt lost control and came to rest at the wood
line in the median. Firefighter-Paramedics treated the man during the
extrication. They used Holmatro Rescue Tools to remove the passenger side
door and displace the dash to extricate the adult male. The man received
non-life threatening injuries. A teenager was also treated at the scene and
both were transported by Fire-Rescue Medic 26 to Colleton Medical Center.
The SC Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
