Diabetes may have contributed to crash that killed SC teen

PIEDMONT, S.C. (WSPA) – A high school student died Friday after a wreck on Wren School Road in Anderson County.

Anderson County Coroner Greg Shore said James Robert Tharp was killed in the crash that happened around 1:45 p.m. near Wrenfield Court, around a quarter of a mile from Wren High School.

Shore said Tharp died at the scene after his 2006 Toyota Camry struck a tree.

Diabetes may have contributed to speed being a factor in the crash, Shore said.

Tharp was a junior at Wren High School.
