Investigation ongoing for Sumter city truck that crashed into home, injuring 2-year-old

Sumter is still waiting on the results of the South Carolina Highway Patrol investigation on the City of Sumter truck that drove through a residence near Sumter High School and injured three people, including a 2-year-old resident, in November.

City of Sumter Assistant Manager Al Harris said the city will determine its next steps after the investigation is complete.

On Nov. 27, a city-marked and -owned 2016 Dodge truck crashed through an addition of a house at the corner of McCrays Mill Road and Perry Boulevard. The truck went through the rear of the building and out the side - the grill of the truck was visible from McCrays Mill Road.

The 2-year-old child reportedly sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries, while another resident and the driver were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The city did not have an update on the conditions of the two residents or the truck driver.

Lance Cpl. David Jones with SCHP said neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected factors in the crash.
