The Cherokee County coroner said Friday that an 8-year-old child had died from injuries sustained in a June 30 crash on I-85.
The crash happened near mile marker 85 in the Cowpens area.
ZyWaun Ratchford of Gaffney died on July 3 at Greenville Memorial Hospital, according to Coroner Dennis Fowler. Fowler said an autopsy performed on July 5 confirmed the cause of death to be a closed head injury that resulted from the crash.
The death was ruled accidental.
Troopers said Ratchford was one of seven juvenile passengers in a Chrysler minivan which was hit from behind by a box truck.
The box truck driver was seat belted and uninjured.
Troopers said the crash remains under investigation and no charges have been filed.
