Posted: Updated:

A single car crash in Aiken leaves one teenager dead and another one injured.

Aiken County Coroner's Office said it happened Saturday around 1:30 a.m. along Piper Road. 18 year old Justin Cantwell was driving a 2003 GMC Sierra truck when he lost control, went into a ditch and struck a utility pole, causing the vehicle to flip over.

Neither Cantrell nor the passenger, 17 year old Dustin Day, were wearing their seatbelts and were ejected from the vehicle.

The coroner said Cantrell died in the crash and Day remains in critical condition at GRU Medical Center.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash. The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating.
