A single vehicle crash left one dead on S.C. 34 Wednesday evening near Chappells in Newberry County.
Daniel Robert Britton, 53, was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, Newberry County Coroner Craig Newton said.
The vehicle was found down a deep embankment, and it could not be seen from the highway by other motorists until daylight, he said.
The crash was not discovered until the following morning by Britton’s sister after he did not return from a shopping trip, Newton said.
Never miss a local story.
Newton ordered an autopsy, which will be preformed on Friday.
