An Aiken woman was killed early this morning when a vehicle ran off the road about five miles north of Aiken.

Elizabeth Boyd, 23, was pronounced dead at Aiken Regional Hospital at about 6 a.m. after she lost control of her vehicle and ran off Outing Club Road two hours before, according to Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton.

Her car struck a tree on the driver’s side door and Ms. Boyd had to be extricated from the car by Aiken County EMS, Mr. Carlton said in a press release. She died from multiple body traumas.

Authorities said she was wearing a seat belt during the wreck and that a toxicology test is pending.

They have to check, and yes,

They have to check, and yes, there may be something there, or maybe not. If they didn't mention toxicology someone on this site would comment something smart like, "Why didn't they check toxicology? Was it because she was white/black? She must know someone." That's the problem with this forum. All that should be allowed are condolences and the webmaster should only allow socially appropriate comments. As it is we're ending up looking like these trash forums on AOL, etc.

Toxicology texts are standard

Toxicology texts are standard in fatal car crashes. Do you think perhaps the young lady may have been on her way to work and was distracted or possibly there was a problem with the car? These things are possible. Let's give her the benefit of the doubt. A young life has been lost and I am sure her family and friends are grief stricken regardless of the cause of the crash.

I knew Liz and I have to say

I knew Liz and I have to say that she was a beautiful amazing person. And shes a GOOD girl. Shame on anybody who thinks this situation is something to joke about. Hopefully if something like this happens to your friend/family member, nobody will make light of the situation. It doesn't matter how it happened, the point is that she is gone and it's a terrible tragedy. My heart goes out to her family.
