Vehicle vs. plow truck crash closes Darlington intersection

No one was injured in a vehicle versus plow truck crash Monday morning, Darlington police said.

The Darlington Police Department and Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a snow plow versus a pickup traffic crash at the intersection of highways 81 and 23 on Main Street around 7:30 a.m., according to a release.

No injuries were reported, but both vehicles were inoperable after the crash, police said.

Investigators said Charles Keister, 57, of Darlington, was driving a city snow plow north on Main Street when a pickup truck, being driven by Cole Gollmer, 17, of Darlington, did not yield the right-of-way and pulled into the path of the plow truck.

The intersection was closed for 90 minutes after the crash while crews offloaded the contents of the plow truck so it could be towed, according to the release.

Gollmer was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way.
