DARLINGTON, SC (WMBF) – Two men died in two separate traffic accidents Wednesday evening near Hartsville and Timmonsville, officials confirmed.

At about 4 p.m., an 18-wheeler driven by 49-year-old Anthony Moore veered off of the Highway 15 just outside Hartsville, said Darlington County Coroner J Todd Hardee. It is not clear if the death was caused by the accident or a natural occurrence while Moore was driving.

Hardee also confirmed a man died when the motorcycle he was riding collided with a truck at about 7:30 p.m. on Sally Hill Road in Timmonsville.

Both men will be sent to Newberry Thursday for an autopsy, Hardee stated. The Darlington County Coroner and SC MAIT are investigating.
