An Aiken man has died following a single-vehicle car accident outside Beech Island on Friday morning.

At 2:06 a.m., the Aiken County Coroner’s Office responded to a traffic fatality reported by a passer-by who discovered a vehicle off the road on Williston Road at Lewis Road, Aiken County Coroner Darryl Ables said.

The driver, identified as 41-year-old Kenyon Goss of Aiken, was the only occupant of the vehicle and was pronounced dead on the scene from blunt force injuries, Ables said. 

Goss was reportedly traveling east on Williston Road, approximately six miles outside Beech Island, in a 2005 Toyota four-door, Lance Cpl. Tyler Tidwell with South Carolina Highway Patrol said.  

Goss traveled off the road to the right, over corrected, crossed the centerline, traveled off the road to the left and struck several trees, Tidwell reported. 

The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle and was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. 

A toxicology analysis is pending on the driver.
