EASLEY — A local woman died last week following a single-vehicle collision.

Pickens County deputy coroner Gary Duncan identified the victim as 63-year-old Diana Tate Burdsal of Shade Tree Circle in Easley.

The collision occurred at 3:33 p.m. Feb. 24 at the intersection of Prince Perry Road and B.J. Drive, according to South Carolina Highway Patrol Cpl. Matt Southern.

Burdsal was driving a 2004 Volvo SUV north on Prince Perry Road when the SUV ran off the right side of the roadway, overcorrected, ran off the left of the roadway, struck a culvert and then overturned, Southern said.

Burdsal was pronounced dead at the scene, Duncan said.

She was wearing a seatbelt, he said.

The Highway Patrol is investigating, Southern said.
