CHESTER COUNTY, N.C. -- A victim of a Chester County car crash died as a result of his injuries Friday.

The crash happened Sunday around 7 p.m. on Secondary 75 at Winnbsboro Road.

Troopers say Paul Stanton, 56, was headed westbound when he ran off the right side of the road, struck a mailbox, overcorrected and drove off the road again on the left side, and then struck a tree.

Stanton was taken to the hospital but died almost a week later.

Highway patrol says Stanton was not wearing a seatbelt.
