The Burke County Sheriff’s Office identified the driver involved in a fatal crash Sunday. Earl Drayton, of Barnwell, South Carolina died after a single vehicle crash on Ebenezer Church Road, near Jack Delaigle Road by Plant Vogtle at 3:00 p.m. The 43-year-old was a Plant Vogtle employee. The Sheriff’s Office reports speed, no seatbelt, and failure to maintain lane all contributed to the crash. Ebenezer Church Road reopened after 7:30 p.m. Georgia Power still has work to be done, but has completed the priority issues, according to officials.
The family has been notified. Sheriff Alfonzo Williams and the entire Burke County Sheriff’s Office extend their condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Drayton.
