GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) - Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said a Blacksburg man who was hurt in a crash last month in Gaffney has died from his injuries.

Robert Lee Sisk, 55, of Dravo Road died at 2:15 a.m. Wednesday at Spartanburg Medical Center, Fowler said.

“Mr. Sisk was the driver and lone occupant of a 1998 Chevrolet that was headed south on Cowpens Pacolet Road at 12:22 p.m. on August 27 when he ran off the right side of the road and struck a mailbox," Fowler said. "Sisk overcorrected and ran off the right side of the roadway again striking a tree. He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash."

Fowler said an autopsy was performed Thursday revealed Sisk suffered a medical incident prior to the crash. 

The manner of death was ruled natural.
