Two York men and a Gastonia, N.C., woman were killed in a single-vehicle crash that happened a few minutes before midnight Saturday on S.C. 5 about 3 miles west of York.
The S.C. Highway Patrol identified the deceased as Jimmy Leon Loggins, 23, of 1010 Gemstone Road, York; Trinity Marvin Kimble, 31, of 3026 Punk Black Road, York; and Natalie Nicole Brown, 28, of 2207 Acapulco St., Gastonia.
Kevin Loggins, 28, of 1285 Woodland Heights Road, York, was driving a Chevy Blazer westbound on S.C. 5 at about 11:55 p.m. Saturday when the Blazer ran off the right side of the road at a curve, overturned and struck a tree and fence, according to the Highway Patrol.
The three victims were pronounced dead at the scene, said Cpl. Bryan McDougald of the Highway Patrol. All three were ejected from the Blazer, and none was wearing a seat belt, he said.
Never miss a local story.
Kevin Loggins and a passenger, Amanda Jenkins of the same address, were taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. Jenkins was treated and released, a nursing supervisor said Sunday night, and Kevin Loggins was in good condition.
McDougald said Kevin Loggins will face charges.
Speed was a factor in the crash, he said.
The three deaths brings the York County fatality toll to 20 for 2007, slightly less than this time last year.
