MARLBORO COUNTY, SC (WBTW)- A 19-year-old man from Clio died after a two vehicle crash in Marlboro County Tuesday afternoon.

The crash happened on U.S. Highway 15 around 4:25 p.m. According to Corporal Sonny Collins, the driver of an 18-wheeler was traveling North on Highway 15 when he struck the passenger side of a 1999 Jeep Cherokee  that was traveling South on Highway 15.

Troopers say the driver of the Jeep Cherokee attempted to make a left turn onto Oak Hill Road and failed to yield the right of way to the 18-wheeler.

The passenger of the Jeep was killed in the crash, but the driver was transported to a Scotland County Hospital in North Carolina.

Collins says both the driver and passenger in the Cherokee were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
