A man from Darlington is dead after

a one-vehicle crash early this morning

in Lafayette County, about three-miles

north of Darlington.

Lafayette County authorities say 33-year-old

Jay J. Schwartz was found dead

inside his vehicle. Schwartz was pronounced

dead at the scene by the county coroner.

The preliminary investigation shows Schwartz

was driving south on County-F in the

Town of Willow Springs. That’s when he

lost control of his vehicle. It went off the

road and rolled over at least once before

coming to rest on its’ wheels. Authorities

say Schwartz wasn’t wearing his seatbelt

at the time of the crash.


It’s the third traffic death on Lafayette County

roads this year.
