BELTON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Troopers say a Saturday afternoon crash took the life of an Anderson County driver.

The incident happened around 3:30 pm on SC Hwy 20, approximately 1 mile north of the city of Belton.

Reports say the driver was traveling south on SC 20 in a 2003 Dodge pickup truck when he ran off the left side of the roadway and struck a tree.

The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected during the crash.

Sadly, the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The coroner reported that 52-year-old George Hesser of Honea Path was the driver killed in the crash. He says Hesser may have had a medical issue that caused the accident.

The coroner expects to know more after Hesser's autopsy Sunday.
