Two people who died in a Tuesday afternoon single-vehicle crash on Interstate 77 have been identified by Richland County Coroner Gary Watts.

Columbia residents Devonte Ramal Seabrook and Anastasia Louise Icenogle both died at the scene of the wreck, according to a news release from the coroner’s office.

The wreck occurred around 2 p.m. near the Bluff Road Exit on I-77, according to South Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper David Jones.

Seabrook, 25, was driving a vehicle that hit a highway sign on I-77 then caught on fire, Watts said in the news release.

An autopsy showed Seabrook’s cause of death was from “multiple blunt force injuries to the head and body,” according to the news release.

Watts also performed an autopsy on Icenogle, 25, and determined her cause of death was from “blunt force injuries to the body,” the news release said.

Seabrook and Icenogle were listed as residents of the same Columbia address, according to the news release.

The coroner’s office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol continue to investigate the deadly wreck.
