A woman was killed in a head-on crash on Pageland Highway on Tuesday night.

The woman's name was not available on Wednesday.

According to the S.C. Highway Patrol, the woman was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu east on S.C. 9 about 6 miles east of Lancaster when she crashed into a 2001 Ford pickup truck driven by Matthew Rape, 23, 2252 Ben Massey Road.

Lance Cpl. Jeff Gaskin said Rape, who was headed west, drove left of center and sideswiped a 2001 Kia sedan driven by Calvin Curtis, 82, 3305 Lorraine Lane, before hitting the Malibu head-on.

The woman was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, where she died, according to authorities.

Rape was also airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center. He was discharged on Wednesday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Curtis was taken to Springs Memorial Hospital, as was a passenger in the Malibu. The passenger's name was unavailable on Wednesday.

The crash is still under investigation by the Highway Patrol's Multi-disciplinary Accident Investigation Team, Gaskin said.
