Traffic fatality

A Greenwood woman died following a Wednesday night wreck in Fairfield County, according to officials.

Latoya Scott, 39, died at the hospital where she was being treated for her injuries in the wreck, said Fairfield County Coroner Chris Hill.

Scott was driving south along Road 99, about 8 miles south of Carlisle, when the 2006 Toyota she was driving went off the right side of the road, said trooper Joe Hovis with the state Highway Patrol. Scott overcorrected and ran off the left side of the road, hitting a ditch.

Scott wasn’t wearing a seat belt and was thrown from her vehicle, Hovis said.

She was taken to Prisma Health Richland Hospital for treatment, where she died.
