FLORENCE COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – One person was killed and another was injured in a crash early Friday morning in Florence County, officials said.

According to Master Trp. Brian Lee with the South Carolina Highway Patrol, the crash happened around 2:45 a.m. on Secondary 38, also known as S. Hill Road.

A 2004 Chevrolet pick-up traveling north ran off the roadway to the right and overturned, Lee said.

The driver, who was wearing a seat belt, was killed in the crash, according to Lee. Florence County Coroner Keith von Lutcken later identified the victim as 20-year-old Garrett Hatchell, of Timmonsville.

The passenger was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, officials said. That person was taken to a local hospital for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

The name of the driver is expected to be released by the Florence County Coroner’s Office.
