OCONEE COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) - The Oconee County coroner says a 21-year-old woman passed away in a single vehicle accident that took place Wednesday, though she was not discovered until days later. 

The coroner's office says Hazel Rose Perras, of Seneca, was traveling on SC Highway 107 when the collision happened around 4 p.m. on Wednesday. The office says she left a friend's house and was en route to Westminster.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says Perras was traveling South on SC-107 when her 2002 Honda Accord went off the ride side of the road. Troopers say she struck a road sign, went down an embankment, and struck several trees.

Perras was ejected, and passed away on scene.

Both agencies say though the crash took place Wednesday,  the collision was not discovered until 7:30 p.m. Friday.

The coroner classified Perras' death as accidental.
