The driver of the car was killed in the accident.
The coroner's office identified the driver as 33-year-old Daniel Kelley of Goose Creek. According to the coroner's office, Kelley's SUV ran off the right side of the roadway and went several hundred feet into a wooded area before hitting several trees and a brick column.
