YORK Co., S.C. (WSPA) — Troopers say a Union man was killed and two women seriously hurt when a driver crashed into their vehicle.

The head-on crash happened 3:30 p.m. Sunday near Rock Hill, said S.C. Highway Patrol Joe Hovis. 

Tyler Cummings, 25, of Rock Hill was driving a pickup truck when he crossed the center line of a highway and crashed into a 2007 Honda with five people inside, Hovis said.

One passenger in the Honda was killed in the crash.

The coroner identified the victim as Paul Kelly, 66, of Union.

Troopers say a 54-year-old Union woman driving the Honda and 26-year-old passenger were trapped in the wreckage. Both women were taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte for treatment of their injuries.

Hovis said a 4-month-old and 3-year-old were also in the Honda. Neither child was reportedly hurt.

Troopers say everyone in the Honda, except Paul Kelly, were restrained at the time of the crash.

Cummings is charged with felony DUI resulting in death and two counts of felony DUI resulting in great bodily injury, Hovis said.

Cummings is booked in the York County jail.
