A New York man became Colleton County’s 22nd traffic fatality of 2018 when he died of injuries he sustained in a one-vehicle crash on I-95 the morning of Dec. 27.
According to Colleton County Coroner Richard Harvey, Joao Garlini, 56, of Mamaroneck, N.Y. died at the Burn/Trauma Center at Doctor’s Hospital in Augusta, Ga. at 8:51 p.m. on Dec. 27. Harvey lists the cause of death as multiple trauma.
Garlini had been driving his SUV southbound near the 41-mile marker Dec. 27 at about 5 a.m. when he went off the road, down a 15 foot embankment and struck a tree.
The collision caused the SUV to catch fire.
A passing motorist stopped and was able to remove the severely injured man out of the vehicle and extinguish his burning clothing.
Garlini’s 16-year-old daughter had managed to exit the vehicle on her own and she was transported to the Trauma Center at Trident Medical Center in North Charleston for treatment.

    Traffic fatalities at a all time high, drugs at an all time high, shootings & murders at an all time high, crime rates at an all time high = because of little Andy boy Strickland as sheriff. He has done NOTHING that he promised during campaigning, and doesn’t care about the citizens of Colleton County, especially the black ones. He’s not loyal to his wife, how can he be loyal to us?
