46-year old man killed in Richland community
Authorities say a 46-year old Westminster resident, Gary Wyman II, died in the crash of a U-haul truck at 8:55 this morning on the Richland Road not far from the Oconee Country Club. Trooper Matt Southern said Wyman was partially ejected from his truck, and Coroner Addis said death was due to blunt force traumatic injuries. At the time, Wyman was northbound on two-lane Richland Road. Near Hickory Nut Drive, the truck went off the road to the left, hit guardrail and trees. At the scene, a fallen tree lay across the smashed truck. A neighbor, Steve Wright, rushed to see what had happened. Wright said he was awakened by a “powerful” noise.
