Latest Aiken County Traffic Fatality was Driving without Seat Belt


The Aiken County Coroner’s Office is investigating a motor vehicle accident that claimed the life of a Waynesboro woman.

Beatrice Arrington, 41, was killed. The accident happened Friday afternoon at approximately 12:58 p.m. on Jefferson Davis Highway at Sudlow Lake Road in Warrenville, according to Coroner Daryl Ables.

“The victim was the unrestrained driver of a 2018 Hyundai 4-door traveling north on Jefferson Davis,” the coroner said. “She attempted to make a left turn onto Sudlow Lake Road, turning into the path of a southbound 2010 Ford sedan causing the sedan to crash into the passenger side of the Hyundai.”

Arrington was pronounced dead on the scene from blunt force trauma, and the sedan driver was not injured.

Toxicology analysis are pending. Burnettown Police Department is continuing with the investigation.
