Blythewood Man Killed in Wilson Blvd. Crash

BLYTHEWOOD (Oct. 20, 2016) – A little more than an hour after being involved in a three-car pile-up on Wilson Blvd. last week, a Blythewood man succumbed to his injuries at Palmetto Health Richland Memorial Hospital.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said William Allen McMahon, 58, of Running Deer Road was pronounced dead in the Palmetto Health Richland Memorial emergency room at 3:36 p.m. on Oct. 12. An autopsy indicated McMahon died from multiple blunt force injuries to his upper body as a result of being an unrestrained driver in a motor vehicle collision, Watts said.

According to the S.C. Highway Patrol, McMahon was driving a 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck north near 11092 Wilson Blvd. and, at approximately 2:30 p.m., stopped to make a left turn into a private drive. McMahon’s pickup was struck in the rear by a 2002 Ford pickup truck being driven by Jonathan Reis, which sent McMahon’s Chevrolet into the southbound lane. McMahon’s pickup crashed into a 2016 Jeep traveling south on Wilson Blvd.

The Highway Patrol said Reis and Erica McClurkin, the driver of the Jeep, were both wearing seat belts and were transported by EMS to a local hospital with minor injuries.

The accident remains under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
