DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly single-car crash that happened Sunday along I-26 in Dorchester County.
Troopers say a Chevrolet SUV was traveling east on I-26 before veering off the highway, striking a ditch, and trees, then overturning.
One person in the vehicle’s backseat was killed and four other occupants, including the driver, were taken to an area hospital for treatment, according to SCHP. The status of their conditions is unknown at this time.
Dorchester Coroner Paul Brouthers later identified the victim as 14-year-old Jocelyn Beltran of Goose Creek.
