They said the driver of the Chevrolet Impala, 22-year-old Dayton Dwy, was driving on Clemson Avenue when he ran a stop sign, pulled onto Matheson Avenue, and was hit in the driver's door by a Ford F650 truck.

Paramedics pronounced Dwy dead at the scene.

Investigators said it appears that speed, failing to stop for a stop sign and alcohol are factors in the deadly crash. They also said Dwy was not wearing a seatbelt.

The driver of the truck, Jeb Stuart, was taken to the hospital with a minor injury. Investigators said Stuart was wearing a seatbelt, he wasn't speeding, and he wasn't intoxicated.
