GREENWOOD COUNTY, SC — Two people have died following a crash late Monday afternoon in Greenwood involving a three-wheeled moped and a commercial truck, reports WYFF4.

A preliminary investigation found that Gregory Jon Smith and Joanne Warren Williams, both local residents, were traveling on the moped. At one point, the moped hit a commercial truck with a wood-chipping trailer as the truck began turning left from South Emerald Road onto North Emerald Road.
First responders pronounced the moped operator deceased at the scene. The passenger was rushed by medical helicopter to Prisma Health Greenville Memorial Hospital, where the patient also later died.
