2 killed, 4 injured in South Carolina crash

Two people were killed in a head-on collision involving three vehicles on a highway near Conway on Feb. 1. The accident occurred around 7 p.m., according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

Authorities said a pickup truck was headed east on U.S. 378 when it veered across the centerline, striking a westbound SUV head-on. A sedan then struck the SUV from behind.

The 36-year-old pickup truck driver, a Myrtle Beach woman, and her 29-year-old male passenger, from Cades, died from injuries they suffered in the crash. The driver of the SUV, a 36-year-old man, was seriously injured and airlifted to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center. The male passenger in the SUV and two female occupants of the sedan were taken to the same hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The accident was under investigation by the South Carolina Highway Patrol's Multi-Disciplinary Accident Investigation Team. Further details will be released upon completion of their preliminary report.

Anyone who suffers serious injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident may face months of expensive medical care and rehabilitation. They may also be left unable to work for an extended period of time, potentially causing tremendous financial strain. If the accident was caused by the actions of a negligent driver, such as a drunk or a distracted driver, the injured victim may wish to file a personal injury lawsuit. With the aid of an attorney, it may be possible to obtain financial compensation for a victim's medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. If the at-fault party died in the accident, a lawsuit could be filed against their insurance company and estate.
