A 60-year-old Kershaw man died Monday evening, Feb. 24, after he was injured in a two-vehicle accident along S.C. 903.

Larry Sims was pronounced dead at the scene, said Lancaster County Deputy Coroner Glen Crawford. His cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma.

S.C. Highway Patrol Trooper Billy Elder said the accident happened about 6:30 p.m. when the vehicles collided at the intersection of Goldmine Highway (U.S. 601) and Flat Creek Road (S.C. 903).

Elder said Sims was driving east on Flat Creek Road in a 1996 Ford pickup when he collided with Wendy Reinman, 42, of Kershaw, who was driving a 2010 Toyota west along the road.

“(Sims) was pronounced at the scene. He was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision,” Elder said.

Reinman was injured in the crash and flown by helicopter to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte for treatment.

On Tuesday morning, she was listed in good condition, according to a CMC media relations spokeswoman.

Elder did not have specifics about the cause of the crash and did not release any information about potential charges in the collision.

“The crash is currently under investigation by the Highway Patrol’s MAIT (Multi-disciplinary Accident Investigation Team),” Elder said. “That’s all the information we can provide at this time.”
