Traffic fatality

A driver died Monday night after a single-vehicle wreck in Saluda County.

Heidy Cruz Cadena, 20, of Ridge Spring died at the scene of the wreck Monday night, according to Saluda County Coroner’s Office Chief Investigator Angie Rita.

The crash happened at 10:55 p.m. along Goff Road near Church Road, which is about 3 miles west of Batesburg-Leesville, said Master Trooper Gary Miller with the state Highway Patrol.

Miller said a southbound 2004 Nissan Xterra SUV went off the left side of the road, then back onto the road and off the right side, striking a tree.

Cadena, who was wearing a seat belt, was trapped in the vehicle and died of her injuries, Miller said. The vehicle had no passengers.
