One person was killed in a wreck in Sea Pines Plantation early Sunday morning, the S.C. Highway Patrol has reported.
Around 12:36 a.m., a 2001 Dodge pickup truck wrecked, said Sgt. Bob Beres. The truck was heading north on Sea Pines Drive when it drove off the right side of the road, struck a tree and overturned. The truck then caught fire, Beres said.
The driver, who was the only person in the truck, was killed. Beres said it wasn't clear if the driver was wearing a seat belt.
The body was sent to MUSC for an autopsy and identification, Beaufort County Deputy Coroner David Ott said.
Never miss a local story.
The highway patrol is continuing to investigate.
The driver's identity has not been released by the Beaufort County Coroner's Office.
