— A crash in Lancaster on Wednesday sent two people to the hospital after a truck overturned, spilling logs onto the road.

The intersection of Little Dude Road on U.S. 601 north of Kershaw was closed for three and a half hours after a freight truck rear ended a pickup and then crashed into another car in opposing traffic.

A 27-year-old from Jefferson slowed down for traffic in his Chevrolet pickup, but the driver of a truck transporting logs behind him was driving too fast, according to Highway Patrol.

Brian Griffin, 29 , of Greensboro, N.C., has been charged with driving too fast for conditions. Griffin’s logging truck crossed over the center lane of traffic, overturning and colliding into a 2012 Kia driven by a woman from Locust, N.C.

The Jefferson driver was driven to Springs Memorial Hospital and the Locust woman was taken by air to Carolinas Medical Center Main in Charlotte.
