MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - According to the crash report released Thursday by the Mount Pleasant police department, freshman Citadel cadet Keith Schemm was driving an estimated 70 mph in a 40 mph zone just before the crash that killed him and Wando High School senior Elizabeth Daniel in early April.

Schemm was driving south on Rifle Range Road when he hit a right curb, then a sidewalk and swerved left before crossing the center line and overcorrecting, according to the crash report. The overcorrection caused the SUV to yaw and strike a tree on the other side of the road.

Schemm graduated from Wando High School in 2018.
