SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) – The Spartanburg County Coroner said a man has died nearly a week after being injured in a crash.

The coroner said 57-year-old Max Alexander Burns of California Avenue died at the hospital just after 12:30 a.m. Monday.

Burns was involved in a crash that took place on August 5 along Highway 9.

Troopers say Burns was traveling south on Boiling Springs Road when he crossed the center line, ran off the roadway, ran over the exit ramp to I-585 north, traveled across the grass and struck the median barrier overturning onto I-585 south. 

Troopers say Burns was not wearing a seatbelt and was transported to the hospital where he later died. 

The highway patrol investigated this crash.
