ROCK HILL — Charges are pending for a Lancaster man who troopers say ran into a truck on a Rock Hill highway Monday, causing a crash that resulted in a fuel spill.
Authorities closed off parts of S.C. 5 at Reservation Road at about 2:30 p.m. when they say Glenn Thompson, 18, swerved over the center line while traveling north in a 2000 Mazda and hit a box truck traveling south, said Lance Cpl. Billy Elder with the Highway Patrol.
Thompson was taken to Piedmont Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, Elder said. He will face charges for driving too fast for conditions. The trucks driver, Lehron Robinson, also of Lancaster, was uninjured.
The trucks fuel tank was punctured in the crash, Elder said, spilling an unknown amount of fuel. The state Department of Health and Environmental Control helped with the cleanup. The road was closed Monday, but has since reopened.
