Young Spartanburg Man Killed in Crash

On Thursday afternoon, November 11, a young Spartanburg man was killed in a crash on Interstate 26.

According to Spartanburg County Coroner, the crash happened shortly after 3 p.m. on westbound Interstate 26 near the Interstate 85 interchange and Exit 19. The South Carolina Highway Patrol went on to say that a 1997 Plymouth being driven by a 22 year old male, was heading west on Interstate 26 when a 2005 Nissan Altima being driven by 20 year old Jeffry Hunter Nelmes of Spartanburg, lost control and crossed the median. The two cars collided and Nelmes was trapped in his car. Once extricated, he was taken to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center where he passed away.

The driver of the Plymouth was also taken to hospital but his injuries are unknown.

A third vehicle was hit from behind by the Nissan following the initial impact, but its occupants were uninjured.

The investigation is still ongoing and it is not yet known why Nelmes lost control.
