A teenager killed Sunday night in an all-terrain vehicle accident in Edgefield County, S.C., has been identified.

The 15-year-old driver was making a right turn around
9:40 p.m. on Mill Creek Drive when the ATV left the road and hit a tree, said South Carolina Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Scot Edgeworth. Edgefield County Deputy Coroner David Burnett identified the victim as DaJuan Willingham.

The driver and his passenger, Brandon Eubanks, 22, were thrown from the ATV, but only the driver, who was wearing a helmet, was killed, Edgeworth said.
