The crash happened on Interstate 26 in Orangeburg County, not far from the exit leading to the town of Orangeburg, WLTX-TV of Columbia reported.
Neither truck driver was seriously hurt, the station reported.
The victims were not immediately identified.
“We are still doing identifications and still have to notify next of kin,” Orangeburg County Coroner Samuetta Marshall told the Times and Democrat of Orangeburg.
Traffic was backed up for hours after the 12:30 p.m. crash as westbound lanes of the interstate were closed and slowdowns occurred in the eastbound lanes.
Vehicles were rerouted to Highway 301 toward Highway 176 West as emergency responders worked at the scene, WLTX reported.
