Bethune man dies in fiery crash with log truck
Placeholder Image
A Bethune man died Tuesday morning when the SUV he was driving went out of control, collided with a logging truck and burst into flames on U.S. 1 at James West Road near Cassatt. Kershaw County Coroner David West said the accident occurred at 11:40 a.m. when Kenneth Lee Melton, 46, was westbound on U.S. 1. West said Melton apparently lost control of the vehicle, drove off the road, overcorrected, drove back onto the highway and spun around so the SUV was still traveling west, but backwards.
