Victim identified in fatal Awendaw wreck

AWENDAW, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County Coroner's Office is releasing the identity of the person killed in a single car accident in Awendaw Saturday evening.

Sandra Ann Weiss, 72, was killed when the car she was traveling in went off of Highway 17 N, near Awendaw Creek Bridge, and landed upside down in Awendaw Creek. It's unclear if Weiss, of New Bern, North Carolina, was the only person in the car.

According to the Charleston County Sheriff's Office, several agencies responded to the scene, including a rescue dive team and a Coast Guard helicopter.

Highway 17N was closed in both directions for several hours following the crash, but it has since reopened.
