 — The Lexington County Coroner’s office has identified a teenager killed in the one-vehicle accident on I-20 westbound on Saturday afternoon.

Matthew Lawrence Johnson, 16, of Columbia, was killed when an SUV carrying eight people on I-20 blew a tire, ran off the road and overturned several times, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

The accident occurred around 2:30 p.m. in the westbound lane near mile marker 38, Trooper Bridget Wyatt said.

Lashonda Wood, 39, of Columbia, was driving the 2006 sports utility vehicle when the passenger-side rear tire blew out, sending the SUV off the right side of the road. The vehicle flipped several times, Wyatt said.

Seven passengers in the vehicle were taken to Palmetto Health Richland hospital.

The Highway Department has not said if the teenager was wearing a seatbelt. The accident remains under investigation by the Lexington County Coroner’s Office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
