GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) –

The coroner said a Greer man died in a crash late Tuesday night on SC 101 N at Berry Mill Road.

The crash happened at 11:41 p.m on SC 101 N at Berry Mill Road at the Oneal Grocery & Hot Dog Shoppe.

According to troopers, the driver drove off the left side of the road, struck a ditch and hit a utility pole.

Troopers tell us the pickup truck overturned and hit the building. The vehicle came to rest on its roof.

The Greenville County coroner confirmed the driver died on scene.

The coroner identified the victim as 23-year-old Brandon Macivor of Fews Chapel Road.

The Lake Cunningham Fire Department and Highway Patrol responded to the scene.

Jonathan Anderson with the Lake Cunningham Fire Department said this was not the first time they’ve pulled up to a scene like this but each situation has different challenges.

"When you’ve got a car into a building that presents a lot of different safety issues, you’ve got structural, and then of course you have normal vehicle issues with fluids leaking and then it’s inside of a building, so there’s a lot of unique challenges just to that," said Anderson.

No other vehicles or passengers were involved.

Tina Andrews, the owner of the Hot Dog Shoppe, came out to the scene to survey the damage.

"My heart goes out to the family of the young man who was killed. All of this stuff can be replaced but a life cannot," Andrews said.

Andrews said she hopes to reopen the restaurant.

"We’re going to do our best to get up and running again as quickly as possible if it is possible. We have to make sure the building is still structurally sound."
