DARLINGTON, S.C. — Three people died in a span of five hours on Darlington County roads Saturday night.

The first crash happened on Philadelphia Street at 7:15 p.m. when a 2006 Mercury sedan that was westbound ran off the left side of the road and into a tree, said Sgt. Sonny Collins of the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

The driver, and only occupant of the car, died in the crash, Collins said.

Darlington County Coroner J Todd Hardee identified the victim as Adrian Edward Dolford, 30. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

At 8 p.m. an eastbound 2000 BMW SUV struck a pedestrian who was walking in the east-bound lanes of Interstate 20 at the 131 mile marker, near the Lamar Highway exit.

The pedestrian died in the crash, Collins said.

Hardee identified the victim as Ward Neal Jr., 53, of Nichols. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

At 11:50 p.m. on S.C. 403 a head-on collision near Emerald Lake Road killed on person and sent three others to hospitals.

Collins said a 2003 Honda sedan and a 2014 BMW sedan ran head on into each other.

Hardee said he is still working to identify the driver of the Honda, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Three people in the BMW were taken to hospitals, Collins said.

The Patrol's MAIT (multi-disciplinary accident investigation team) is investigating to determine which vehicle crossed the center line, Collins said.
