CHERAW - A rising high school freshman died Friday night in an ATV accident.

Trace Shipley, 14, had just finished eighth grade at Long Middle School in Cheraw.

They said Trace went to turn around on McMillian Road and he turned into the path of a truck traveling eastbound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers were on the scene Saturday reconstructing the accident.
