COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a single-vehicle crash that killed one person Saturday night.

The crash happened at approximately 10:05 p.m. Saturday on Academy Road, according to Lance Cpl. David Jones.

Troopers say a Toyota truck was traveling West on Academy Road when it went off the right side of the roadway and overturned.

The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, died in the crash, Jones said.

The identity of the victim has not yet been released by the Colleton County coroner.

It was the second fatal single-vehicle crash of the day in the county, troopers say. Earlier, another driver died when the Lexus sedan they were driving went off Mt. Carmel Road and struck a ditch, Jones said.
