DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The coroner has identified a 19-year-old woman from Round O who died after a single-vehicle crash in Dorchester County.

Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet said Alesa "Allie" Murdaugh died from a traumatic brain injury after the wreck Wednesday around 5:30 p.m. on Stokes Bridge Road.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says Murdaugh was driving south when she ran off the road, over-corrected, lost control, and flipped several times.

Troopers say she was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the car.  Murdaugh was flown to MUSC, where she died from her injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
