PICKENS COUNTY, S.C. —
The driver of a U.S. Postal Service mail truck was killed Friday in a crash involving a dump truck, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
The crash was reported just before 3:30 p.m. on Highway 11 at Little Eastatoe Road, or Roy F. Jones Road, in Pickens County, the Highway Patrol website said.
Trooper Brandon Bolt said the driver of the mail truck was pronounced dead at the scene.
Bolt said the 1993 Grumman LLV mail truck was heading south on Highway 11 and driving too fast for conditions when the mail truck was struck by a 2000 Peterbilt dump truck heading north.
The mail truck went off the left side of the road and hit a ditch, Bolt said.
The victim’s name has not been released.
