The driver of the lawnmower was heading south on a highway near Patrick, which is about 75 miles northeast of Columbia, at around 6:35 a.m. on Oct. 5, according to Master Trooper Gary Miller with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
A 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer was also heading southbound on the highway when it struck the riding mower, which was towing a trailer, Miller said.
The driver of the lawnmower was pronounced dead on scene, he said. The driver of the Chevrolet Trailblazer and a passenger were not injured.
Miller did not release the name of the lawnmower driver.
