AIKEN, SC (WRDW) -- South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal accident this morning.
The coroner confirms one person, 23-year-old Ryan Jackson, has been killed in the single vehicle accident.
The accident happened around 1 this morning on Edgefield Highway and Morris Pond Rd.
SCHP says the driver was going south on Highway 19 when he went off the right side of the road and overcorrected.
The 2008 Ford F150 overturned and Jackson was ejected. Troopers say the driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
The coroner says alcohol and speeding may have been factors in the wreck. A toxicology report is pending.
