COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say a Colleton County Coroner's Office employee died in a single vehicle wreck Friday morning, shortly after dropping a body off at MUSC.

The Colleton County Coroner's Office identified the driver as 60-year-old Isaac Levine, a volunteer deputy coroner who has been with the county for six years.

Colleton County Fire-Rescue responded to the 8800 block of Ritter Road in South Colleton around 4:16 a.m. for reports of an accident. 

Officials say Levine was returning from MUSC after dropping off a body when his coroner's office van drove off the side of the road, crashing into a tree. Levine was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.

The cause of the accident is being investigated by Highway Patrol.
