A 31-year-old woman died and a 3-year-old passenger was hospitalized after in a single-car collision Tuesday morning in Sumter County.
The Sumter resident was the driver of a Mitsubishi sport utility vehicle that went off the right side of Starks Ferry Road around 7:50 a.m. about four miles south of Sumter, S.C. Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Trevor Clinton said.
The driver overcorrected to the left and the SUV struck a tree and overturned, Clinton said. The woman, whose identity was not immediately available, was not wearing a seat belt. She was pronounced dead at 7:58 a.m. at the scene.
The child, whose condition is not known, was taken to Tuomey Regional Medical Center, Clinton said.
