Passenger dies in 1-car Lexington County crash

Jul 3, 2011 6:19:00 PM - thestate.com
A passenger died at the scene of a Lexington County traffic incident early Sunday after the car he was riding in ran a stop sign and overturned several times on Platt Springs Road, about eight miles east of Lexington, officials said.

Christopher Shawn Mitchell, 22, of Lexington, died of multiple head and body injuries, said coroner Harry Harman. He was not wearing a seat belt.

Mitchell was riding in a 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven north on Cross Road by Jonathan Dwane Frye, 23, of West Columbia, Harman said.

Frye was transported to Palmetto Richland with serious injuries, officials said. No information was available on whether he was wearing a seat belt.

After going through the stop sign, the car — which was traveling at a high rate of speed — hit a ditch and then struck a building, according to the S.C. Highway Patrol.
