The Charleston County Coroner's Office identified the victim killed in a single-vehicle fatal collision Saturday night.

Jackie McLamb, 40, died in the crash, according to Deputy Coroner Dottie Lindsay.

Deputies say the crash happened just before 9 p.m. on Saturday on Highway 17 North near McClellanville.

The passenger of the vehicle was transported to MUSC with minor injuries.

Deputies say the car, a Saturn, was traveling north on Highway 17 when the driver lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle then crossed into the center median where it flipped over and stopped in the southbound lane of Highway 17.

The driver was ejected from the vehicle and suffered fatal injuries.

Investigators believe speed was a factor in the collision.

This incident is still under investigation by the sheriff’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Unit and the Charleston County Coroner’s Office.
