UPSTATE – The South Carolina Department of Public Safety announced that Greenville Trooper Daniel K. Rebman passed away from his injuries after his Patrol vehicle was struck overnight while he was on duty.
Rebman was stationary in his Patrol vehicle in the emergency lane of I-385 near Bridges Road when his Ford Taurus Patrol car was struck from behind by a pick-up truck around 12:23 a.m. on Oct. 24, said a SCDPS spokesperson.
