Driver dies in Spartanburg Co. crash on Parris Bridge Rd.


SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – One person has died in a Spartanburg County crash that happened Saturday night.

The crash happened on Parris Bridge Rd. near Heritage Creek Dr. at about 9:40 p.m., according to South Carolina Highway Patrol. The driver of a 2006 Nissan was traveling north on Parris Bridge Rd. when they traveled left of center onto the median, and struck a 1995 GMC work truck that troopers say was legally parked in the median.

This caused the truck to travel off the ride side of the roadway and strike a concrete barrier wall.

The driver of the Nissan was transported to a hospital, where they died. The coroner’s office identified that person as Demetrius Garrett, 36, of Boiling Springs.

The parked truck was unoccupied and no other injuries were reported, according to SCHP.
