They used Holmatro Rescue Tools to remove the passenger side door and displace the dash to extricate the adult male. The man received non-life threatening injuries. A teenager was also treated at the scene and both were transported by Fire-Rescue Medic 26 to Colleton Medical Center. The SC Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
