One person killed in single-vehicle crash in Georgetown County

A 24-year-old man died on scene after an early morning crash Tuesday in Georgetown County, according to S.C. Highway Patrol.

Fred Donnie "D.J." Cribb III was the victim in a one-car crash that happened about 1:30 a.m. on Rose Hill Road, according to the Georgetown County Coroner's Office. The cause of death was multiple body trauma, the coroner's office said.

The truck hit a ditch and then a tree before overturning. The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle, Jones said.

The driver died on scene, Jones said.

S.C. Highway Patrol is investigating.
