One dead after single-car accident on Savannah Hwy

RAVENEL, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Maj. Eric Watson confirms deputies are working a fatal single-car accident on Savannah Highway.

The accident occurred near Caw Caw County Park just past Highway 162 shortly after 1 p.m.

A preliminary investigation indicated the driver of a black 2002 Ford SUV traveling North on Highway left the roadway for unknown reasons, Charleston County Sheriff's Maj. Eric Watson said. The driver then over-corrected, causing the car to flip until it came to a final rest.

The victim, whose identity has not yet been released, was pronounced dead at the scene, Watson said.

The cause of the accident is being investigated by the Charleston County Sheriff's Office Traffic Division.
