A Williston woman is dead after a fatal head-on collision with a tree in Aiken County on Wednesday morning.

At 10:20 a.m. the Aiken County Coroner’s Office was called to the scene of a single-vehicle traffic fatality in the 1300 block of Old Barnwell Road in Williston, Aiken County Coroner Darryl Ables said.

The victim, 32-year-old Sandra Anderson of Williston, was pronounced dead at the scene from blunt force trauma.

Anderson was the restrained driver of a 2003 BMW traveling west on Old Barnwell Road, Ables said.

As she exited a curve, Anderson lost control of her vehicle, drove off the left side of the road and struck a tree, Ables reported.

Toxicology analysis is pending, and South Carolina Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate.
