A second person injured in an accident on SC-277 Saturday has now died.

A Honda SUV was traveling on SC-277 with four passengers inside when the vehicle went off-road and overturned, according to SCHP Lance Cpl. David Jones. The driver and one of the passengers, who were unrestrained, were ejected from the vehicle.

They were both taken to the hospital where the passenger, identified as Kevin Anthony Jones, 21, of Columbia, died Saturday. His cause of death has been ruled as blunt force trauma to the head, according to Richland County Coroner Gary Watts. 

On Monday, Watts said Krystin Prince, 24, of Columbia, died Sunday night from injuries sustained in the crash. Watts said Prince was the driver of the vehicle.

The other two passengers were wearing their seatbelts. 

The accident happened on SC-277 southbound around 5:30 p.m. The accident blocked all of the lanes one mile south of I-20 east for about an hour. 

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
