A four-vehicle crash on Christmas Eve in Aiken County left one person dead, according to the S.C. Highway Patrol.

The crash happened just after noon Tuesday on S.C. 302 or Wagener Road, Sgt. Bob Beres said. The driver of a 2004 Pontiac was traveling eastbound in the far right lane and then switched lanes and cut off a vehicle in the left lane.

The driver crashed into the other vehicle when changing lanes and then crossed over onto the westbound side of the road and collided head-on with another vehicle, Beres said. Another vehicle was also involved in the crash.

The passenger in the 2004 Pontiac was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center, Beres said. Two other people were transported to area hospitals.

The Aiken County Coroner's Office has not released the name of the driver who died.
