GRANITEVILLE, S.C. -- A Grovetown man is dead after an early morning accident Saturday.
The Aiken County Coroner said the accident happened around 7:20 a.m. near the 600 block of Trolley Line Rd.
The victim, identified as 22-year-old Juan E. Arreoloa-Olvera, was on his way to work with his nephew, Luis E. Corona.
The coroner says Corona attempted to pass a 2006 Dodge Truck when he struck the front end of it. We're told Corona then lost control of his vehicle, causing it to overturn and eject Arreola-Olvera.
Arreola-Olvera was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
No other injuries were reported.
A toxicology test is pending for Corona.
The accident is under investigation by the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
