WTOC just obtained the state police report about the crash that happened on Jan. 16 that killed 18-year-old Effingham County High School student, Christian Cowan. 

It happened on Rincon Stillwell Rd. in Effingham County. Travis Williams, 18, was also in the car and suffered injuries. He was airlifted to the hospital and is expected to recover. 

According to the initial GSP report, authorities do not know who was driving the Honda Civic at the time of the crash. Investigators say they were coming around a curve on Rincon Stillwell Rd., ran off the road and crashed into a culvert. The car then flipped over the culvert and hit a tree. 

Cowan was thrown out of the car. The report says he suffered serious head injuries.
