A Rembert man was found dead in the cab of his tractor-trailer cab at the Black River Shell convenience store and gas station on Sumter Highway (U.S. 521) Tuesday afternoon.

Kershaw County Coroner David West said in a press release that the death of Carlton Brooks, 49, of Rembert, is still being investigated by the Camden Police Department.

“The 18-wheeler was parked in front of the gas station since Monday morning,” West said. “He had gotten fuel in the truck and pulled it up front and parked it. The cause of death is unknown at this time. He was sent for an autopsy in Newberry, but it came back as (needing) further study.”

West said the cab did not have a trailer on the back, and that the truck belongs to Brooks, whom he described as an owner-operator.
