South Carolina teen dies in ATV crash

Aug 1, 2011 10:32:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities say a 15-year-old McCormick County teen has died after his all-terrain vehicle crashed into a tree.

The Augusta Chronicle reports ( http://bit.ly/nM5uMq) DaJaun Willingham of Clarks Hill was making a right turn on an Edgefield County road when he lost control of the ATV and hit a tree about 9:40 p.m. Sunday.

The coroner's office said an autopsy was being performed Monday.

Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Scot Edgeworth says both Willingham and his 22-year-old passenger were thrown from the ATV. Willingham was wearing a helmet. Passenger Brandon Eubanks received minor injuries and called for help.

A new ATV safety law approved this year by South Carolina legislators requires anyone under age 16 to take a safety course and wear a helmet and eye protection.
