Three people were injured, two critically, when two vehicles collided head-on in the 400 block of McLeod Road at 13:19 Sunday 26-September. An eastbound Jeep dropped off of the shoulder and overcorrected, causing the vehicle to slide sideways into westbound traffic, striking a westbound Chevrolet Trax head-on. Both occupants of the Chevrolet received life threatening injuries. They were one block from their home. Firefighter-Paramedics arrived to find two heavily damaged vehicles in the westbound ditch. Crews requested two additional Fire-Rescue ambulances and two medical helicopters. Click here for more information.

19/September/2021 - Fatal MVC - "C" Shift

An adult male died in a single vehicle accident Sunday evening 19-Sept. The accident was in a field, approx 1/4 mile off of the 22700 block of Bells Hwy (SC Hwy 64) west of the Town of Lodge. The incident was dispatched to Colleton County units at 21:43. Colleton Fire-Rescue units arrived 13 minutes later to the dark remote area to find an overturned Ford Ranger in a pond. The victim had been pulled up on a causeway and had no signs of life. The accident evidently happened earlier and due to the cell tower location, the 9-1-1 call was routed to a different county which caused some delays. Click here for more information.
Our sincerest condolences go out to Fire-Rescue Chief Barry McRoy for the death of his brother Keith McRoy.
