Allendale woman killed in wreck
Pink and white balloons filled the air in remembrance of a 19-year-old Allendale woman who was killed last week in a car wreck.
Allisa Freeman of Sincere Lane, Allendale, was pronounced dead about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 19 following an automobile versus tree collision on Highway 278 East near Mt. Olive Circle in Barnwell County, said Barnwell County Coroner Lloyd Ward. She died of head trauma, he said.
Lance Cpl. David Jones with the S.C. Highway Patrol said Freeman’s 2006 Toyota four-door car first went off the roadway to the left before she overcorrected and then went off the right side of the roadway where she struck several trees.
Ward said Freeman was not wearing a restraint and was pronounced dead at the scene. Toxicology results are pending as the case remains under investigation by the Coroner’s Office and the S.C. Highway Patrol.
Freeman, who graduated from Allendale-Fairfax High School in 2016, was remembered by friends, classmates and other loved ones during a balloon release on Dec. 23.
“Let these balloons fly and thank God for her life while she was here,” stated a woman in a video of the release posted on Freeman’s Facebook page.
Allisa Anastasia Freeman, aka “Nookie” age 19 was born on April 6, 1998, in Columbia to Camron Develle Freeman and Andre L. Lofton, according to her obituary.
A funeral service was held at 2 p.m., Sunday, December 24 at the Macedonia CME Church in Allendale with words of comfort by Pastor Samuel Moses. Burial followed in the All Cemetery.
