A long-time fire fighter died early last evening after an accident on South Carolina 24 in Anderson County. The victim was identified as David Wright, a 23 year member of the Seneca Fire Department and a long-time chief of the nearby Friendship Volunteer Fire Department. Lance Corporal David Jones of the South Carolina Highway Patrol reported the accident at 6 p-m when a 1988 International tractor-trailer truck crashed through guardrail on the left side of 24 and went into Lake Hartwell. According to Oconee Fire Chief Charlie King, Wright was driving a truck as part of his father’s business in Anderson. King said, “Oconee County lost a great man….Our thoughts go out to his family, friends and those left to carry on.”
