EDGEFIELD, SC-- An Edgefield County man is dead after a Saturday morning accident.

The county coroner says 51-year-old Sherman Barrett was killed when he lost control of his van on Martintown Road and went down an embankment.

The van flipped and he was thrown out.

Barrett had a Clarks Hill address but the coroner says he lived in Edgefield County.

Emergency crews found Barrett about 10 yards from the van around 4:30 Saturday morning.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating.
