A 24-year-old Georgetown man was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Bay Point Road in Georgetown Saturday night.
Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry said Henry S. Gilliam III was killed when his 1988 GMC 1500 pickup truck veered off the road while traveling north and struck several large trees.
Merry said the accident was discovered by a passing motorist who reported it at 9:46 p.m. Sheriff deputies responded to the scene and requested medical air transport but attempts to stabilize Gilliam were unsuccessful.
Merry said Gilliam was not wearing a seat belt and alcohol is considered a contributing factor in the accident, Merry said.
Merry said investigators are still trying to trace Gilliam’s whereabouts before the accident.
