SIX MILE — A Six Mile man was killed in a single-car accident near his home Monday night.

Pickens County coroner Kandy Kelley identified the victim as Jan Zwolinski, 62, of Gap Hill Road.

The accident occurred at 7 p.m. Monday on Gap Hill Road near Walhalla Highway, three miles south of Pickens, according to Lance Cpl. Gary Miller with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

Zwolinski was traveling east on Gap Hill Road in a 2001 Lexus SUV when the vehicle went off the left side of the roadway and struck a utility pole before overturning, Miller said.

There were no passengers in the vehicle and no other vehicles involved, Miller said.

Miller said Zwolinski was entrapped in the SUV while Kelley said he was pronounced dead at the scene of blunt-force trauma.

Zwolinski was wearing a seatbelt, Kelley said.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is still investigating the accident.
