Early morning collision leaves one dead

An early morning collision left one person dead on S.C. Highway 71 near Gassoway Farm Rd. on Sunday.

According to Lance Cpl. Bill Rhyne of SCHP, a 1999 Ford F-350 was travelling south on S.C. Highway 71 at about 5:45 a.m. Sunday morning when it veered off the right side of the road. The driver over-corrected and the truck went off the left side of the road, striking a ditch and several trees.

Rhyne said there were three occupants in the vehicle, none of whom were wearing seatbelts. One occupant of the vehicle, 26-year-old Benjamin Garner of Abbeville, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. The names of the other two occupants were not immediately available.
