3 dead in 1-vehicle crash

In a motor vehicle accident in Dillon County on Aug. 23, three men from North Carolina lost their lives. The early morning car crash occurred in Dillon.

According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol senior trooper, the collision happened on U.S. 301 by Commerce Drive. At about 4:15 a.m., a Chevrolet Impala was heading north when it suddenly left the left side of the road, crashing into a tree. There were five individuals in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

The victims included two 18-year-old men and one 23-year-old man who were all from Fairmont. When emergency responders arrived at the scene, the driver and two of the passengers were pronounced dead. The two remaining passengers were transported by ambulance to a nearby medical center for treatment of the injuries that they suffered in the accident. Authorities did not release the identity of the individual who was driving. The South Carolina Highway Patrol's Multi-disciplinary Accident Investigation Team is continuing its investigation into the accident. The speed that the vehicle was traveling at and the potential cause of the accident have not been released to the public at this time.

When individuals are injured in a car crash, an accident investigation may help prove how one of the parties involved was at fault for the auto crash. A personal injury lawyer may be able to conduct such an investigation by interviewing witnesses who were at the scene, having evidence analyzed and consulting accident reconstruction professionals. If a person has to seek medical treatment due to injuries that he or she suffered in the auto accident, that individual may be able to receive compensation for the costs associated with treatment.
