November 20, 2019

A man from Lexington County died on the scene after crashing his pickup truck into a utility pole. The accident occurred on Sunday night, South Carolina Highway Patrol informed.

The accident happened about 8 p.m. on U.S. 378, on the location where the highway connects with U.S. 1, or West Main Street, Cpl. Sonny. The area is close to downtown Lexington, and about three miles from Lexington High School.

Charles Christopher Gossett was driving a 2005 Ford pickup truck when he ran off the road and collided into a utility pole.

The thirty-two-year-old driver suffered serious injuries and was immediately taken to an area hospital. Unfortunately, he did not manage to make it and died in the hospital, the coroner’s office informed.

The driver was not wearing a seat belt during the accident.

No other vehicles were involved in the collision; Gossett was not transporting any other passengers, Cpl. Sonny Collins said.

Highway Patrol continues investigating the accident.
