RIDGEWAY — A 71-year-old man died Nov. 30 following a one-vehicle wreck on Bellfield Road.

Williams Loynes was driving a 1990 Chevrolet pick-up truck about 4.5 miles from the town of Ridgeway when the truck went off the right side of the road and struck a tree, according to the S.C. Highway Patrol.

He was flown to Palmetto Richland Memorial Hospital, where he died. The S.C. Highway Patrol said he was not wearing a seat belt. Loynes was the only passenger in the truck. The accident remained under investigation on Monday.
