— The two people who died in a fiery predawn crash over the weekend on I-20 were a North Carolina mother and young son, Kershaw County coroner Johnny Fellers said Sunday.

Fellers identified the pair as Sanya Santiago, 27, and her son, Einar, 5, both of Fayetteville.

Both died of trauma on impact and not from the fire, which started after the 2004 GMC SUV Santiago was driving slammed into trees along the roadway, Fellers said.

The crash happened around 6 a.m. Saturday as the vehicle was traveling west toward Columbia. It happened around mile marker 104, which is about four miles east of Camden toward Bishopville.

The Highway Patrol was on the scene and continues to investigating.
