Richland County coroner Gary Watts identified the 63-year-old man killed in a single vehicle accident early Saturday morning as Frederick E. Schroder, Jr. of Greenville.
Schroder was the driver and only occupant of a 2008 Infinity SUV heading east on Jacobs Mill Pond Road in NE Richland County around 2:50 a.m., Sgt. Bob Beres of the SC Highway Patrol said.
The vehicle ran off the right side of the road and hit several trees. Schroder, who was not wearing a seatbelt, “died from multiple trauma associated with the crash,” Watts said.
Schroder was the owner of a small engineering consulting company, S-Systems, LLC, in Greenville, SC Secretary of State records indicated.
