Coroner Greg Shore said he was called to a crash on High Shoals Road at Abbeville Highway around 6:45 a.m.

Troopers said the victim was driving a 2004 Kia four-door that ran off the road and flipped. The driver became entrapped in the vehicle and died at the scene.

The coroner identified the victim as 63 year-old William Michael Fowler of Anderson. Shore said that Fowler died from a head injury and was not wearing a seat belt.

According to the coroner, icy road conditions were a contributing factor to the collision. This crash was one of at least 20 in Anderson County and 60 in the Upstate that troopers responded to Tuesday morning.
