KERSHAW – A Kershaw man was killed after his pickup truck apparently exploded after he ran into a ditch Monday.
Roger Wayne Self, 43, of 4011 Victory Road, was pronounced dead at the scene by Lancaster County Chief Deputy Coroner Karla Knight Deese.
S.C. Highway Patrol Sgt. Kelley Hughes said Self crossed Rob Neal Road coming out a driveway in his 1997 Chevrolet pickup about 4:20 p.m. and ran into a ditch.
Self tried to drive out of the ditch, but the truck became stuck, Hughes said. The truck caught fire and Self got out of the truck.
