The two men killed in a head-on crash in Lexington County Tuesday morning have been identified.

Ronald C. Bolin, 71, and James F. Gleaton, 73, both of Neeses, were pronounced dead at the scene due to injuries suffered in the collision, according to Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher. The two men were traveling together in the same vehicle, and they were wearing seat belts, said Fisher.

The collision occurred around 7:30 a.m. on Hwy 321 (Savannah Highway) near North, at the Lexington-Orangeburg county line, according to Master Trooper David Jones with the S.C. Highway Patrol.

Bolin and Gleaton were moving in a north direction on Hwy 321. They were in a 2011 Toyota when the driver of a 2006 Chevy van traveling south crossed the center line, striking the car head-on, said Jones.
The driver of the Chevy van was not wearing a seat belt, and was transported to the hospital with injuries.

The crash remains under investigation by the S.C. Highway Patrol.
