A single-vehicle crash early Sunday morning in Newberry County killed a driver.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says the crash occurred at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.  A car driven west on SC 34 lost control, went off the side of the road and hit a utility pole about five miles from Silverstreet.

The Newberry County Coroner identified the driver as 26-year-old Harry Phelps of Greenwood.

Troopers say Phelps was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle.  He died at the scene.
