DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A Darlington County woman died following an automobile collision Saturday night.

According to Darlington County Coroner, J.T. Hardee, Sobie Soles Dixon, 53, of Hartsville died when her vehicle left the roadway and overturned. Dixon was the only person in the vehicle. The accident occurred on Lakeview Boulevard at around 10 p.m.

Hardee pronounced Dixon dead at the scene. She died as a result of injuries from the crash. The collision was a single-car accident and is still under investigation.

Friends of Sobie, including Hardee, said she was an active member of the community who had an infectious personality and smile.

"She was a credit to the Hartsville community," Hardee said. "She was a good friend to a lot of people and she was a good friend to me and we will certainly miss Sobie Soles Dixon."

About 600 people attended her funeral services Tuesday. John Griggs was one of the attendees. He said he hired Sobie while working at Agape Hospice Care. She continued to work there until her death.

"She was a hard worker. Her mind was constantly working," Griggs said. "For those who knew Sobie, knew her mind was wide open. She was busy as a bee."

Griggs has since moved to Embrace Hospice, but he said he remained good friends with Sobie. The two had a chance to catch up in person last week and Griggs talked to Sobie over the phone the day before the accident.

"We talked for 21 minutes. I still have the record on my cell phone and the last thing she told me was, 'I love you John Griggs,'" he recalled.
"And I said 'I love you too, Sobie Soles.'"

Sobie has two sons, Rion and Preston Dixon, and she leaves behind many loving family members.

    As the heat index climbs above 100, the temperature reading on your car's dashboard will likely show an even higher, and inaccurate number. The temperature is actually coming from a tool called a "thermistor." Instead of a normal thermometer which uses mercury, the thermistor tracks the change in the heat based on the electrical charge that temperatures cause.
