Traffic fatality

A driver has died after a wreck in Newberry County earlier in the week, the state Highway Patrol announced late Saturday.

The crash happened at 3:14 p.m. Tuesday along state Highway 391 near Pilgrim Church Road, about 1.5 miles south of Prosperity.

A southbound 2007 Chevrolet van went off the right side of the road, struck a culvert and overturned, Lance Cpl. Justin Sutherland said.

The driver and a juvenile passenger were taken to Prisma Health Richland Hospital in Columbia, formerly Richland Memorial Hospital. Sutherland said neither was wearing a seat belt.

Sutherland did not say when the driver died and the coroner has not released details about the wreck.
