DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Dorchester County Coroner’s Office has identified a 14-year-old girl killed in a Sunday night crash on I-26.

Jocelyn Beltran from Goose Creek was pronounced dead at the scene, Dorchester County Coroner Paul Brouthers said. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday at the Medical University of South Carolina.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol said the crash happened just before 8 p.m. Sunday night on I-26 eastbound near mile marker 182.

Lance Cpl. Nick Pye says a 2007 Chevrolet SUV was traveling east on I-26 when it ran off the right side of the road, struck a ditch and trees and overturned.

Beltran was a passenger in the vehicle, Brouthers said.

The driver of the SUV and three other passengers were taken to the hospital.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol and the Dorchester County Coroner’s Office are investigating.
