The Spartanburg Coroner says 23-year-old Charles Walter Cothren of Chapel Road was killed after his car went off the road, overturned, and hit a tree in Greer.
The incident happened shortly after 9 p.m. on Victor Hill Road, Wednesday.
He say Cothren was wearing his seatbelt although high speeds and alcohol were a contributing factor.
Cothren’s cause of death is a direct result from the collision with head and body trauma.
A passenger was injured and taken to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol. There is no word on that person’s condition.
