DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A Summerville man died early Tuesday morning after a single-vehicle accident on Highway 17A in Dorchester County.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says that the accident happened around 2:40 a.m. on Highway 17A and Orangeburg Road.  One car, a 2007 Pontiac with no passengers, was driving south on Highway 17A and ran off the road. The car then overturned several times.

Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet said that 29-year-old Maurice Angelo Smalls was ejected from the vehicle during the crash.

A witness said the car may have hit a utility pole, but the highway patrol has not confirmed that information.
