The SC Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly wreck in Anderson County Saturday night.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. on US 29, near Whitten Road, about a mile east of Anderson.

Troopers say the driver of a moped was traveling north on US 29 when it drove left of center and hit a car traveling south on US 29 head on.

They say the moped driver was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from the moped, and died at the scene.

The Anderson County Coroner's Office identified the moped driver as 48 year old Carol Annette Watkins of Anderson.

Deputy Coroner Don McCown says Watkins died of blunt force trauma and a skull fracture.

McCown also says alcohol appears to be a contributing factor.

The driver of the car and four passengers, including a woman, a one year old and two other children, were not injured.
