A 16-year-old passenger was killed Wednesday night in a single-car crash that also left the driver with injuries.
Jamisa Lewis, 16, of Pawleys Island, was pronounced dead at the scene from massive head trauma, according to Paulette Radcliffe, with the Georgetown County Coroner’s Office.
The crash happened about 6 p.m. on U.S. 17 in Pawleys Island after the 2002 Toyota traveling north ran off the left side of the road, lost control, and overturned multiple times, according to Lance Cpl. Judd Jones with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
Lewis, who was wearing a seat belt, died in the crash, Jones said, while the driver, who also was wearing a seat belt, suffered non life-threatening injuries and was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center.
The crash remains under investigation by the SCHP Multi-disciplinary Accident Investigation team, Jones said.
