      Patrolman L. Lawson Rhodes

      South Carolina Highway Patrol and the South Carolina Department of Public Safety honored a trooper killed in the line of duty in 1938 by dedicating a portion of highway to him.

      Patrolman L. Lawson Rhodes was on duty in Chesterfield County and died instantly when his motorcycle was struck by a car coming from a side road.

      Rhodes was a native of Darlington County.
