A driver has died after running off the road and striking a tree in Aynor on Friday morning, according to South Carolina Highway Patrol.
The single-vehicle collision happened about 8 a.m. on 11th Avenue, Cpl. Sonny Collins with SCHP said. A 2007 Honda Accord traveling north ran off the right side of the road and struck a tree, Collins said.
The driver was not wearing a seat belt, he said.
SCHP is investigating.
Darris Fowler, a deputy coroner with the county coroner’s office, said an autopsy should be complete Saturday morning. Officials are investigating whether the person died from a medical condition or as a result of the wreck.
