COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts has identified the man who died in a single-vehicle collision Thursday. 

The collision occurred at Farrow and Parklane Roads in Columbia around 1:27 a.m.

Antwone L. Davenport, 51, of West Columbia, SC, was an unrestrained passenger who was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. An autopsy indicated that the cause of death was due to massive blunt force injuries to the body.

The driver of the vehicle was fleeing from a sheriff's deputy who was pursuing her when she lost control of the vehicle. The driver was taken to Richland Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. Neither were wearing seat belts, according to officials. 

According to Deputy Katelyn Jasak of the Richland County Sheriff's Department, authorities attempted to execute a traffic stop around midnight. The suspect sped away and was chased by a Richland County deputy.

The chase ended near the 8300 block of Parklane Road after the suspect crashed. Officials tell WIS the 2004 Toyota flipped multiple times.

The deputy's vehicle was trapped under a utility pole that came down shortly after the crash. However, the deputy inside the vehicle was okay.

Firefighters arrived on the scene to extinguish flames from the suspect's vehicle.

The SC Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.
