Victim in single-vehicle Mt. Pleasant crash identified

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - The victim in a fatal accident early Monday morning has been identified.

Steven Graddick, 40, of North Charleston was killed in the single-vehicle accident, according to Charleston County Deputy Coroner Sheila Williams.

Graddick was transported to MUSC where he died, Williams said.

Deputies responded shortly before 1 a.m. Monday to the area of Boston Grill Road and Rifle Range Road where a vehicle had struck a tree, Charleston County Sheriff's Maj. Eric Watson said.

Investigators say the victim was driving west on Boston Grill Road and failed to stop for a posted stop sign, driving through the intersection and hitting a tree on the other side of the road.

He did not appear to be wearing a seat belt, Watson said. Speed and failure to stop for the stop sign are contributing factors in this accident, he said.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office is investigating the crash.
