Driver in Fatal Crash Identified

web posted March 2, 2014

WESTSIDE The driver killed in a one vehicle crash early Sunday morning has been identified as 28-year-old Wesley D. Lawrence, of Modoc, Dep. Coroner David Burnett said Sunday morning. The crash took place around 12:20 am and emergency personnel were on the scene until 2:30 am.

Burnett said that it appears Lawrence ran off the left side of the 100 block of Cold Springs Road and then struck several trees, one of which was felled into the roadway. It is unknown if Lawrence may have run off the right side of the road and over-corrected before losing control of his pickup truck. The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the fatality.

Burnett said that Lawrence was pronounced dead on the scene from several injuries received in the crash. No autopsy will be performed. Blood was taken for toxicology tests, but results would not be available for at least two weeks. Speed may have been a contributing factor, Burnett said, "but that will be up to the Highway Patrol to determine".

This marks the first fatality in Edgefield County in 445 days, dating back to December 11 of 2012. In 2013 there were zero fatalities in the county - the only county in the state that year that saw no fatalities.

Edgefield Mercantile Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements, which will be released when completed.
