CHEROKEE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – One person was killed during a single-vehicle crash in Cherokee County.
The driver, John Bradley McCullough, 53, of Greenville, was heading west on Corinth Road in a 1999 Toyota Camery at about 3:10 p.m. when they traveled off of the left side of the roadway and crashed into a tree, according to the Cherokee County Coroner’s Office.
The driver was fatally injured and was pronounced dead at the scene, troopers said.
Fowler said McCullough was wearing a seat belt and the airbags did deploy.
Coroner Dennis Fowler said there were no indications that McCullough attempted to apply the brakes prior to the crash. Fowler said this fact raises questions as to if he could have suffered a medical condition right before the crash.
Fowler said McCullough suffered a cardiac event that rendered him unconscious just before the crash Tuesday.
The Cherokee County Coroner’s Office and SCHP will continue to investigate the crash.
