Traffic fatality

A 23-year-old from Ninety Six died in an early morning wreck Saturday, authorities said midday.

Gavin L. Truelove of Wilson Bridge Road died of his injuries at the scene, Greenwood County Chief Deputy Coroner Eddie Briggs said in a media release.

The crash happened at about 4:30 a.m. along S.C. Highway 702 near Eddy Road.

Truelove was heading west in a 2013 Ford pickup truck when the vehicle went off the right side of the road, Cpl. Joe Hovis with the state Highway Patrol said. The man overcorrected and the truck went off the left side of the road, striking several trees.

Briggs said the vehicle rolled over before stopping.

Truelove was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected, Hovis said.

Highway Patrol’s realtime traffic map indicated troopers were still on scene about noon.
