Jul 2, 2010 9:21:00 AM - thestate.com
A 20-year-old Sumter woman was killed in a traffic collision in Sumter County when the vehicle she was driving went off the road and hit some trees.

A passenger, Shaharria Alston, 19, of Sumter, was injured in the wreck and taken to Tuomey Regional Medical Center for treatment, S.C. Highway Patrol trooper Billy Elder said.

The driver, whose identify was not immediately available, was driving east on U.S. 76 around 4:05 a.m. this morning when the Ford sport utility vehicle went off the right side of the highway and hit a stand of trees, Elder said.

Neither the driver nor Alston were wearing seat belts, and the driver was thrown from the SUV and died at the scene, Elder said.
