One Clinton man was killed and another hospitalized from a one-car wreck just outside town at 9:45 Wednesday night. Laurens County Coroner Nick Nichols yesterday identified the deceased as 73-year-old Dan Cox Woods of 304 Dixon Street, Clinton. He said Woods died instantly. Highway Patrol Lance Corporal Tony Keller said the car being driven by Woods was southbound on Highway 56 1.1 mile past the Clinton City Limits when it ran off the right side of the road, down an embankment, struck a tree and overturned. Woods was driving his 2013 Dodge Charger.
Keller said that a passenger, 23-yer-old Joshua Parker of Clinton, was taken by EMS to Self Regional for treatment of his injuries. Both men were reportedly wearing their seat belts.
