Woman dead in two-truck wreck on Highway 1

One woman is dead after an accident in Aiken County.

It happened on Highway 1 at Sacher Ford near Aiken Technical College.

Sheriff Michael Hunt says one Ford F-150 was turning into the dealership when another F-150 broadsided it.

The passenger in the truck that was hit was thrown from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital. The sheriff's department says their injuries are serious.

Highway 1 is down to one lane in that area, so things are backed up.

It's been a deadly week on the Aiken-Augusta Highway. Just yesterday, an 11 year old was killed at the intersection of Highway 1 and Interstate 520.
