A 30-year-old woman has been identified as the person killed in a fatal accident over Memorial Day holiday weekend.

York County Coroner Sabrina Gast said Wednesday that Zshakira Shealy of Rock Hill died at the scene of an accident on Saturday at the intersection of Celanese and Ebinport roads.

Shealy’s vehicle collided with a car driven by another person at the intersection around 1 p.m., Gast said and Rock Hill Police Department Lieutenant Michael Chavis.

The driver of the other car was taken to Piedmont Medical Center for injuries caused by the collision, Chavis said. Police did not identify the other driver.

Rock Hill patrol officers, forensic pathologists and the city’s Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team (STAR) responded to the crash. The STAR team is still investigating the cause of the collision, Chavis said Wednesday afternoon.
