A 22-year-old Grovetown man was killed in a crash Saturday morning near Graniteville.

According to Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton, Juan E. Arreoloa-Olvera and his nephew were on their way to work at 7:20 a.m. when the nephew failed to pass a truck on Trolley Line Road.

Arreoloa-Olvera was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the car when it overturned, Carlton said. He was pronounced dead soon after arriving at Medical College of Georgia Hospital.

The nephew, Luis Corona, also of Grovetown, did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

This seems to be the second

This seems to be the second accident where someone failed to complete a passing in time. Doesn't seem like seatbelt wearing is the problem.

Not wearing a seatbelt

Not wearing a seatbelt contributed to this man's untimely death. What's not reported here is that the victim was ejected and then run over by another vehicle.I personally know a couple of the emergency responders who were there. Wear your seatbelts folks so your family will not have to go through this.
