Police continue to investigate fatal collision on I-95

JASPER CO., SC (WTOC) -

Police are continuing to investigate a strange death that happened at 6:30 p.m. Sunday on I-95 in Jasper County.

According to South Carolina Highway Patrol, a female passenger in the four-door Buick traveling in the left lane of I-95 southbound got out of the car as it was passing a tractor-trailer near mile marker 33. She was struck and killed by the tractor-trailer, which was being driven by Brand Graham, in the right lane. The highway was closed down for about three hours while authorities investigated. Officers say the driver of the Buick, David Beaver, had little time to react.

"I can say the driver of the vehicle probably didn't expect this to happen. This is probably something you can't prepare for. When you have a passenger take off the seatbelt and exit without notice, it is heart wrenching. One person isn't effect in this, it is several people. It is sad," said Sgt. Bob Beres, South Carolina Highway Patrol.

South Carolina Highway Patrol and the Jasper County Sheriff's Office are investigating the fatality. No charges have been filed and the woman's identity has not been released.
