A 62-year-old grandfather was declared dead on Wednesday night after a brutal single-car accident that took his life.
It was around 6:30 p.m., when the grandfather was driving his 2001 Mercury Sable westbound on Constitution Blvd in Rock Hill, when he crossed over the double yellow line.
He was subsequently in the eastbound lanes in the wrong side of the road, made it all the way across without hitting any other vehicle and unfortunately, slammed into a tree.
His 9 year-old-granddaughter was in the backseat of the car, wearing her set-belt but still suffered some minor injuries. She and her deceased grandfather were rushed to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, where the man was pronounced dead, and the little girl is expected to make a full recovery.
The accident is still currently under investigation however, and the York County Coroner has not officially released the exact cause of death.

Last Friday in Rock Hill was filled with deadly crashes for all York County drivers.
At one point, there were four different areas in the County with residents and civilians dying from different traffic accidents in the Carolinas.
The Rock Hill Herald has just released that a man from Salisbury, age 48, and his female passenger from Rockwell, age 42, both were fatally wounded on Interstate -77 in York.
The man was driving a commercial tractor-trailer, when he must of dozed off at the wheel, causing the two ton vehicle to veer off the right side of the southbound land they were travelling in, just past S.C. 901 in York County.
The accident caused the Interstate to be barricaded off for essentially the rest of Friday afternoon. The big rig eventually found itself halfway in the street, and the other half stuck in a plot of 100 year old oak trees.
The York County Coroner was able to identify by the positions of the bodies, that the 48 year old man was in fact the driver, and the female was his girlfriend accompanying him on his drive to deliver products for the company he worked for.
They were sadly pronounced dead on scene by the time the EMTs arrived, due to the serious impact of the collision.
All too often over-correcting forces drivers into the path of oncoming vehicles or propels them off the other side of the road. Many times, the over-correcting is a result of losing control of the vehicle due to distractions like texting while driving. Drivers should always remain vigilant about safety and pay attention while driving.

The Rock Hill Police Department is still investigating an accident that took place on August 8th, earlier this month involving a family as all the key players.
The accident at hand took place on Mt. Gallant Road in Rock Hill, which for some reason seems to be where lots of accidents occur in Rock Hill. It is one of the City’s main street that can direct you to any other exits or avenues to Rock Hill, mainly, Cherry Road.
According to the police reports, the 43-year-old man and his 20-year-old son were walking down the side of the road, when all the sudden a 1995 light blue Geo Prism came darting in their direction. They could hear the engine revving as the car sped towards them in a frightening manner.
The father took his son and threw him in the ditch, protecting him from harm’s way as the car veered off the side of the road into their direction.
The father was seriously injured when the car struck the man in his knees, and causing the man to roll atop the vehicle that charged him.
The saddest part of this story is that the hit-and-run defendant has been identified as the 39-year-olf wife and mother of the two men she attempted to hit.
The son went unscathed, and the father was rushed to Piedmont Medical Center for immediate treatment.
