A Rock Hill man was killed late Wednesday in a crash in western York County where his SUV overturned several times, officials said.

Matthew Brian James, 23, died at the scene, said York County Coroner Sabrina Gast.

James was driving a 2001 Ford Explorer when he crashed around 9 p.m. on Burris Road, said Lance Cpl. David Jones of S.C. Highway Patrol.

The SUV went off the right side of the road after overcorrecting and overturned several times, Jones said.
