Crash at McLeod Farms results in injuries, damage to building

A customer at the Roadside Market at McLeod Farms was airlifted to Charlotte after suffering injuries from being hit by a vehicle on Sunday.
Master Trooper Gary Miller of the S.C. Highway Patrol said the accident occurred at 1:17 p.m. March 17
on Highway 151 a few miles south of McBee.
He said the incident involved five vehicles, a building and a pedestrian.
According to the report, a
pickup truck towing a vehicle on a trailer was traveling north on Highway 151.
Miller said the truck swerved to dodge another vehicle slowing to make a right-hand turn.
The driver of the truck struck
the vehicle in the right rear, continued off the roadway, and struck three other vehicles in the parking lot.
Then the truck hit the building and struck a pedestrian inside the building.
Miller said the driver has been charged with driving too fast for conditions.
Miller added the accident is still under investigation.

Rachel McLeod McCormick, marketing coordinator at McLeod Farms, said the back side of the store is closed, but the area with the produce, bakery and restrooms is opened.
“W
e are just going to section off that portion of the store until we’re able to make those renovations and open it back up,” she said.
There were no
injuries to any of the employees.
“We had a lot of employees step up and try to help people up, if they were pushed over, if some items had fallen,” McCormick said. “We were really proud of our staff for helping ou
t and being supportive of the first responders.”
She added their thoughts and prayers are with the person who was injured and airlifted to a hospital in Charlotte.
